Prayer Service at Christ Lutheran Church
This Saturday there was a Prayer Service for Christian Unity at Christ Lutheran Church on 16th Street NW. About 45-50 of us gathered. A lunch of soup, bread and deserts followed–including an hour of conversation.
A major force behind this service was Mrs. Susan Beck.
Susan was a student in my ecumenism class at LTSG last January.
I was very happy that as an intern at Christ Lutheran she was so instrumental in developing this service.
This service brought together a number of the local clergy–they had not gotten together in a few years. They hope that they will get together again soon.
Susan is an example of what I often say in class–one or two people can make a difference in our ecumenical collaboration.
