A Puzzled Look

  My wife’s family loves to do puzzles.  Over the years her father would put out a large (2000-5000 piece) puzzle every couple of years and the family would stand around and work on it over conversation.  It was regularly at the center of activity during family gatherings....

Idols

Two days ago I had the privilege of seeing my boyhood idol, Steve Martin, at the Pinewood Bowl. I did what I normally don’t do and purchased tickets in the second row. I’ll admit I still feel guilty. Usually when I have something special planned, I’m pretty...

Our Campus and Facility is Ministry

As the season turns, it is easy to notice just how beautiful our corner of the world is at 70th & Old Cheney. Our “by the numbers” reflect our commitment to our members and reveal our intentional theology. We have a beautiful campus and an amazing facility. Though it seems...

(Udoro) Dedication

In the English language the word dedication has a couple of definitions… Last Sunday we dedicated a church – the Udoro sub-parish of our sister congregation, Mudio Lutheran Church. For some, it was a once in a generation experience, for others once in a lifetime. In...

Inspired by the Spirit

Rose and I began our last day by taking in the Anne Frank Museum.  It is located in a historically Jewish neighborhood, the Hackescher Market.  The  museum was hard to find, tucked at the back of an alley – that irony was not lost on us. We again immersed ourselves in a...

Remembering & the “C” in G

Every once in a while, Rose will comment about a little old Germany woman walking on the streets.  She will say that the woman reminds her of her gross-tante (great-aunt).  Rose is half German and speaks fondly of Gross-Tante (that’s what they called her).  She was stern,...

At times it is personal…

Today Rose and I ventured to the area just south of the Brandonburg Gate to the “Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe.”  In essence, this is Germany’s Holocaust Memorial.  Above ground, it consists of the “Field of Stelae,” which are raised...

Cathedrals

One thing you cannot help but notice, looking toward the sky in any German city, is the vast number of steeples that vault heavenward.  Here nearly everyone went to church for centuries.  Now after War and division, Berlin is actually a very unchurched city.  I saw a statistic...

Snow!

This morning we awoke to snow in Erfurt!  On this trip we really haven’t spent any time worrying about weather forcasts (which is kind of weird for us).  So when we got to the breakfast space and looked out and saw big, fat, wet snowflakes falling, our heart leaped with...

“Go to your room…”

I don’t know that I was ever punished by being sent to my room.  My parents had a different and, how shall I say, more immediate way of punishing me.  I don’t know that I ever sent my kids to their rooms.   They had so much fun stuff in there, I knew that...

“…I’d plant a tree…”

Martin Luther once said, “Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree today.”  This quote from Martin Luther has been interpreted a number of ways.  My guess is that the context points to the fact that he trusted his...
