I remember 9.11 when Benke -Lutheran Pastor- participated in a ceremony mourning the dead and families of those killed --He was demonized -and relieved of his duties ...
I say- as long as we can say - IN THE NAME OF JESUS- we should be there-
Well- it happened again- Sandy Hook- A young Lutheran pastor was forced to apologize--for being a part of a ceremony mourning the dead!
My response to another blog (Lutheran) was one of disgust--that it had happened again - that a pastor would be told by the denomination heads to apologize for mourning w/ others of other faiths--
Well- now the Pres of the Lutheran Church MS has apologized --to the chastised pastor and to all of us--
