  1. Will there be another event like this on a different date?

  2. As far as I know, our next planned event is Oktoberfest in Kewanee, IL, on the usual dates: Columbus Day weekend (Sunday-Tuesday).

    If you have a suggestion for another city, please let us know!


  3. I thought Confession came before Holy Absolution, but apparently it is Coffee/Donuts and then Absolution. You crazy Gottesdienst guys! I hope that makes it into your next book.

  4. Rev Anderson -- the Gottesdienst editors have taken it to heart, having heard it from both synodical and seminary publications, that unhealthy living is, in fact, a sin. Thus the scheduling.
