“Kansas City Here I Come”

In a few hours I’ll be headed to Kansas City in the hopes of reclaiming Paul.  I’m not sure what this reclamation project entails, but I’m told it involves “Nazarenes“, “Emergents“, and, if I’m lucky, some late-night reconnaissance at a Waffle House.  This is my first continuing education event that has not been Lutheran-sanctioned.  I’m not sure what that means…but for all I know, I might return in three days with the “gift of tongues” after being re-baptized and taking a vow of chastity.

(At least that’s what I was told would happen if I set foot on non-Lutheran seminaries.)

Speaking of “reclaiming Paul” – the choir director at my alma mater, Dr. Paul Torkelson, announced his resignation after 25 years.  He had recently been working at Carnegie Hall as part of a “one year leave of absence”, but decided to just stay out there permanently.  I can say nothing positive about the man, so I will simply say that I’m happy for the college and I wish him well.
