Just found out that for the third year in a row, St. Paul's will not be assigned a fieldworker from Concordia Seminary. We've had students off and on help out here in their free time, and we've appreciated it a great deal, but we miss the long-term relationships that our parish has enjoyed with seminarians (we've been in the fieldwork program since it began). I wish I understood the rationale - for I know that we've had students REQUEST St. Paul's and they have been denied. Still, I'm glad my former vicars are receiving fieldworkers, and I know that they will train them in the same love and devotion for our Lutheran Confession and our Lutheran liturgy that they experienced here at our parish.
