This year Charlie gave the Homily at Grace Lutheran Church in our annual shared Ash Wednesday service with the Lutherans. He did a good job. I gave him a pass when he used one dirty word, the word "dirty" when it came to describe the smudges he put on our foreheads. Overall, he was much more positive about this Lent than previous attempts at Grace Lutheran. I am afraid the Lutherans have gone contempo. I noticed a large modern drum set next to the organ. Fortunately we did not have a contemporary service, and it was nice of them to put together a new Hymnal with more familiar music. I am sure they did that just for us. And I thought Lutheran music was just derived from an Oompah band.
