Today was sermon prep day. I wrote for most of it. Late afternoon I did some office work at the church then caught up with email at Voo Doo BBQ.

I then took the Lake Ponchartrain Causeway Bridge, the longest bridge in the world (24 miles), to catch dinner and worship at Grace, New Orleans.

I was delighted to see Grace using the synod’s Lord’s Prayer theme for Lent.

A Lutheran Youth Encounter team was visiting, Captive Free. They led the musical portions of the service.

Back across the causeway I went back to Hosanna to pick something up and ended up bumping into two small groups meeting. I sat and visited a bit with the Divorce Care Group.

I finished the day with a cafe au lait at Cafe du Monde. Good day. Tomorrow 8am with Pastor Chris.
