That St. Paul's Voters overwhelming decided to accept a gift from a member of a crucifix for the altar. This marks a return to the architecture of the original St. Paul's Church that similarly featured a crucifix. As our namesake, the blessed Apostle St. Paul, once said: "Before whose eyes Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified" - now when we look to the altar we will see both the crucified Lord upon the altar and the risen and ascending Lord above it. Thanks be to God for the generosity of his people and for the gift of artists who preach the Gospel to us in their creations!
Additionally, the voters approved a new organist who will bring to our congregation the very rich repertoire of historic Lutheran (and other!) organ works: the carollinier, Mr. Carlo van Ulft.
I am truly overjoyed on both accounts. I'm looking forward to our worship this fall and winter!!!
