will mark my final Wednesday Catechism session at the Synod's International Center. It's been such a joy tracking through the Catechism on those Wednesday mornings, as we passed from bitter winter into the warmth of summer. I can't help but think that's how the Catechism carries us along: from the coldness and deadness of our personal winters into which we are born into the full joys of of the warmth and shining light of our Lord's embrace. Not an accident, then, that it STARTS with the Ten Commandments and ENDS with the Sacrament of the Altar. I hope the catechetical review was a blessing to the participants - I know for certain it was a blessing for me.
[And yes, I AM looking forward to getting my Wednesday mornings back - so I can attend our local pericope study group in Maryville and also so I don't have to rush away from our TSP chapels, when Fall arrives.]
