Because Lutherans like bustling spaces: it is exciting to see the sanctuary being used with frequency after such a long pause. In addition to Sunday morning services, online services are pre-recorded there each Wednesday. Small groups have resumed meeting in the intimate transcepts. Day School kids stream in and out for Chapel in the nave. The pews are being cleaned and cared for (Thank you Pauline!) between every gathering. There is a brightness (Thank you Property Stewards!) that makes the place once again alive and welcoming. We are better together.
