Traveling Monkey

That's what I am these days. I'm going be in Toronto until Monday. I'll be at the Lutherans Concerned/North America assembly. The name, Lutherans Concerned, isn't a very good title. It sounds like we sit around with furrowed brow all weekend. Actually, this is a very fun group of people. The title of the assembly is "Together in Toronto", which isn't all that great, either, but we will deal with it.

Two years ago, the assembly was in Minneapolis, and I worked on it. It was a good event (if I do say so myself). I'm excited to go and be a participant.

The assembly is going to be ecumenical. We are working together with the Mennonites and the Uniting Church of Canada. As with anything, each denomination has their own traditions and sacred cows. It's been interesting to hear how these groups have compromised to create an event. I may be a little critical (I guess I always am), but I'm interested to see what the final products is going to be like.

Actually, I'm even more excited to get to visit Toronto. It's a city I've never been to before, so I'm going to be a big tourist!
