I have such wonderful memories of those old Swedes who adopted me, taught me, nurtured me, and loved me. I will be in their dept eternally. Fortunately they were Augustana Synod and not Missouri Synod! I grew up with the fun side of Lutheranism -- they were serious about God, and helped me see that seriousness, but they also loved to live life as fully human. And they passed that to me. They also introduced me to the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, the god of music.
Because of all the above, I have a real dilemma when it comes to Reformation Day. My catholic soul hates the day and my Lutheran soul loves the day. So, I'm going to "go Lutheran" today. The following clip from You Tube is really cool. It's a great way to start out the Reformation Day.
