This has been orientation week here at Concordia Seminary (opening service this morning) and there have been too many events to count. They continue today and tomorrow ahead of the start of classes on Monday. And, yes, we begin the school year later than most schools.
Last night Lutheran Hour Ministries put on a dinner for the incoming first year students and their families. Actually there have been dinners for this class every night this week put on by one organization or other. We went last night and found a large crowd and good food.
