I had a visitor to my office who tried to convince me that it was a good idea for the youth of St. John to distribute these books produce by the Gideon's. It was an interest conversation because I kept trying to educate him as to what a Lutheran was. He kept emphasizing that the Word needed to get out into the world and this little book could do that. I realized that we are both the church, but our purpose and goals are very different. He wants to get the little book out there and I want to read the book. I want to ask, "What do this mean" and he is not to worried about that. During this season of Advent and Expectant Waiting, it is good to talk about what we expect: from ourselves, from our church and from our God. I expect more from people than just being the delivery system.
