Home again, home again

Jiggity-jig. It was a wonderful week at the Institute for Liturgy, Preaching, and Church Music up at Concordia Chicago, and the Lord blessed us with amazingly cool weather for the last full week of July. You can check out some of the services and the hymn festival here. But this old body is totally and completely wiped. No alarm tomorrow, that's for sure. In the thank yous, I gave a special call out to Sandy Bowers and Jonathan Kohrs. Putting together the Institute is like assembling a massive jigsaw puzzle, and I cannot do jigsaw puzzles. It requires a patience yours truly possesses not at all. But  those two worked until the wee hours many a night just so that when the Institute arrived, nothing would detract from the beautiful face of our Lord Jesus that shone through liturgy, sermon, music, and teaching for those who attended. Thanks to everyone who made it such a grace-filled event!
