Jumble of Thoughts
as the Convention wends to its close... Kudos to President Kieschnick and team for focusing upon One People Forgiven - it was a message we needed constantly to hear and live from and it enabled us to get through... Pastor Sanchez definitely knows how to properly distinguish law and gospel and let the gospel predominate - and when are we going to get that paraphrase of St. Francis' prayer in our hymnal???... I really miss Sagar and Malini - it was so good to see them again, and to get to meet Sagar's mother... Red Chair videos were a really mixed bag - the very best were the ones where the DPs confessed their OWN sins and how they were forgiven... David Johnson knows how to play the organ - a pity we didn't get to hear more of him, but I loved his playing... There are so many folks that I didn't get time to visit and really, really wanted to, but the work really is exhausting and we found ourselves hitting the hay rather early each evening... The beauty of Pastor Harrison's first address to the convention... The bishop and brothers from Haiti and the terrifying thought of hurricane striking the island with so many only living in tents - Kyrie eleison! - may the work we do there give hope!... The fine words from Pastor Moon... I miss my Walther (I didn't bring it along, and am eager to get back to reading it)... Glad Cindi got to take this week off and accompany me... Beginning the convention with that extended prayer time was an absolutely wonderful thing - bidding prayer approach, if you will... That's about it! Looking forward to some time floating in my own pool and not doing a blessed thing!!!
