After a long day of travel, I am here in the fine city of New Orleans. The hospitality that we have been greeted with is humbling and inspiring. I am looking forward to spending the next 7 days not only in worship and working with my Lutheran family, but getting to know and experience the charm and spirit of this city and the people who make it happen. And I pray as we live, learn, pray, work and play together, that we would be the church that lives out what I have experienced so far from our gracious hosts, All Are Welcome Here.
In Christ's Love,
