Memories of Detroit

In 1960, I was appointed as a delegate from my national synod to be a delegate to the national convention in Detroit to effect a major merger of most of the Lutheran synods then existing in the U.S.

The convention itself (1962) drew tens of thousands there to Detroit and filled Cobo Hall. When we adjourned, we had a united church of several millions united in one great cause, effectively spreading our gospel and generating peace and harmony in the world. Irene and I were both young and it was a big thrill as well as a Blessing to be there.

Our best wishes and blessings to the youth and adults travelling to Detroit.

- Paul Lampi

National Youth Gathering Trip is Upon Us!

This coming Friday, July 10th late at night, our youth and adult leaders will be heading out for their trip to the ELCA National Youth Gathering in Detroit, with a stop in Lansing MI on the way for more servant work.

Wednesday July 8th we will bless them for their journey. Come to the 6:00 PM Campfire Worship: BYOM to let them know you are supporting them in their journey!

And then pray for us: Ian and Sean Lindblad, Justin and Ben Dryke, Kadin Robison, and adult leaders Jon Erickson and Pr. Laura!

You can find updates on the Journey here on our website and the Family of God Facebook page.
