Thanks to Dr. Craig Satterlee of the Lutheran School if Theology in Chicago for visiting us this week, and talking to us about preaching the Advent/Christmas Cycle.

Included are pictures of the Blessing of the Graves on All Saints day in New Orleans, Louisiana. The photos were taken at the LaFontaine-Hilltop Cemetery in Lacombe. Some of the graves date to the early 19th century and the old ones are in French. Photos by Dave Neubauer.
