On Saturday March 24th, I experienced an extraordinary time with pastor Tim Tengblad of Advent Lutheran Church in Osseo Minnesota. I presented the one day Bible Timeline at Advent Lutheran Church to 250 people as a joint effort between Advent and St. Vincent De Paul Catholic Church. I was so encouraged to see Catholics and Lutherans come together to celebrate what we have in common, salvation history. While I presented the story of the bible, we acknowledged the differences we have in a spirit of ecumenism. As a former protestant pastor, I was so encouraged to see both Lutherans and Catholics come together to try to understand one another.
As a result of today, Advent Lutheran and St. Vincent De Paul are going to co-sponsor the 24 week Great Adventure in the fall of 2007. All I can say is, “Praise the Lord.” I want to thank Chuck Pratt from St. Vincent De Paul for his hard work at making this event happen. I also want to thank Sue Barry-Hagen and Susan McKenzie from Advent for their great efforts. Finally, thank you to Fr. Jack Long and pastor Tim Tengblad. If you attended this event I would love to hear from you. Please leave a comment below.
