Spending time in St. Louis this week...
and noticing the details...
as our church body is in Convention-
The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod.
And as each day moves forward.... and we travel these streets. walking about.....
you are the Lord of the Universe, and we ask you to be a part of this gathering,
that your Light might shine.
May there be a concern and a heart focus on those who do not yet know YOU.
May a Spirit of determination rise up that there
will be a desire to bring you to dark homes and lives-
whatever it takes....
with wild daring to risk, for the sake of their eternal heritage.
That a soul is worth more than a tight hold on tradition.
Give us eyes that really SEE our neighbor.
In the name of Jesus, AMEN."
