after last night talking with some friends of mine.  We were all on vicarage and agree in our hope.  We were mutually worried about our calls.  We have all experienced “Lutheranism” on vicarage.

What I mean by “Lutheranism” is those places and peoples who are Lutheran by name only but Methobapticostal by thought, belief, and practice.  We all conceded that the reason for such people and places is poor pastoring.  Methobapticostal people come from Methobapticostal preachers and teachers.

So, we are worried about being Lutheran, really Lutheran in belief and practice, and surviving in our parishes.

God help us in every way.
