Proclaim the Love that Breaks Down Walls

Last night I attended at the synod's hymn fest at Zumbro Lutheran Church. The planning committee for the event spent over 6 months preparing for and organizing the event. They did a thoughtful, marvelous job. The hymn fest was held on conjunction with the synod's other 500th anniversary of the Reformation events. 

My favorite parts of the service were... 
1) Alex reading a story from the New Testament book of Acts in French. Mesmerizing and awesome and powerful to hear the words in another language and
2) The original hymn "Proclaim the Love that Breaks Down Walls" by Daniel and Christine Kallman. It was SO moving to me. I love modern hymnody. 

I'm heading to a training in Chicago for the next few days! Looking forward to being back in a city I love!
