Revitalizing Lutheran Congregations
Pastor McCain (with some distracting background music - here we're thinking of an earthly problem and he distracts us with heavenly music!) very helpfully cites from District President Cripe about the challenges facing pastors when they realize that their parishes are not - despite the signs - Lutheran. I used to tell my PALS guys: most of you are going out as Lutheran pastors to serve non-Lutheran parishes. Remember that and it will help keep you out of some trouble (and land you in other kinds of trouble). Kudos to Pr. McCain and DP Cripe for sharing what is at the heart of so much heart-break in the LCMS.
