did you join the LCMS, if I might add? I think it’s a very conservative Lutheran Church, no gay pastors, no pastoresses, no nonsense.
We did. A couple with whom we are friends practically had us riding into their church on a donkey. We have now become members of this LCMS church. The husband and I joke that we are the youth group at this church (we are both in our fifties). But, everyone there has made us feel more than welcome.
