My Lutheran Stud

_MG_4396.jpgThis is my husband that I call my Lutheran Stud because he's just that. He's a Lutheran pastor (LCMS) and he knows theology well.
_MG_4399.jpgHe was asked to speak at Our Lutheran Faith Lay Theological Conference this past Saturday in Fort Collins. It's a conference where laymen can come and learn about different theological topics. Not only did people come from the northern Colorado area, there were also people that drove from the eastern plains, Colorado Springs, and Wyoming. It was great!
_MG_4397.jpgThe topic was Heaven and Hell as Revealed in the Scriptures. The conference began with Matins and ended with Vespers. I loved that.
In between Matins and Vespers was all of this Lutheran goodness about heaven and hell. My husband does a fabulous job making charts and helping people understand what he says.

_MG_4388.jpgIt's like he can just snap his fingers and everything makes sense. See? He's doing it right now.
_MG_4393.jpgThere was such a nice turn out for this conference. Either he's a popular guy or the topic of heaven and hell is quite interesting. I'll let you decide for yourself which one it was. Whenever you get a bunch of Lutherans together you always find out what a small world it really is, at least the Lutheran world. We were blessed to meet Lutherans we had never met before. I also met my husband's grandmother Rosemarie's cousin. How crazy is that? We didn't even know his grandma had a cousin in the area.
_MG_4395.jpgJust because I'm married to a pastor doesn't mean that I know everything that he knows. It was incredibly fascinating to learn about what heaven will be like. What I found most comforting is knowing that we will see Jonathan again someday and we'll even get to see him grow up. For now because of the fall into sin we wait. We wait patiently. "But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth which righteousness dwells." 2 Peter 3:13.

"The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed and bring me safely into his heavenly kingdom. To him be the glory forever and ever. Amen." 2 Timothy 4:18

Where are the Clemmers? I do not see the Clemmers!

What makes you think the Clemmers were there? You know, to be as beautiful as Mandy one needs a lot of beauty sleep. They came really late, as in just before Vespers. ;)

Sounds like he was not only called to the pastoral office, but he's also been very blessed as a teacher. I would have loved to be there to hear that! I'm sure I would have found it fascinating.

I still need to meet this husband of yours! Someday...
