I went up north with a team and it was the most wonderful experience. There were a number of us and we barely knew each other and we were supposed to gel in no time flat and coordinate a weeks worth of activities for a town.
There were Lutherans from more than one synod, and Lutherans from the same synod with different spiritual temperaments.
We were people with varied gifts but not different outlooks. We were instantly welded together by God's grace. We complemented each other and bore each other. We are all floored by this. Thanks be to God.
Happy birthday, Joseph!
