Vancouver in May

We attended the ABC district convention of Lutheran Church Canada last weekend. The theme verse was Col. 3:17: "And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." At least, that was what Pres. Bugbee preached on in relation to the theme.

Dr. Carl Fickenscher gave the essay, which was on the actual theme: "His calling: To Faith...For Life. Romans 1:7"; but we missed Monday afternoon. Looking for it at the ABC website.

I see there are other talks by him available at the Wittenberg trail.

Sounds (and looks) like a great weekend, Brigitte.

Actually, Steve, it was as close to heaven on earth as could be (not being a delegate, I skipped all the boring parts).

The campus looked like paradise. Add the singing, praying, eating, theological essays, reconciliation with tears, shopping for books, meeting the neatest people...

How are you? Have not heard lately?

Steve Martin said...

Glad you had such a wonderful experience, Brigitte.

It certainly looks like Heaven!

Me? A little rough these days.

My son is having a terrible time of it and it weighs very heavily on me.

Also, it looks as though my Mom may have lung cancer. We should find out fairly soon.

I was thinking it was things like that. Lord be with you all.

Thanks very much, my friend!
