We got to our first room, and the heater didn’t work. It blew cold air without heating it. The manager assigned us to another room and offered to help move us. He had a bag of drinks and snacks waiting for us on the next room. He also offered to reserve food from the breakfast buffet the next day.
The National Cathedral, which is nominally Episcopalian but has advertised itself as a “ministry for people of all faiths and perspectives,” hosted a Muslim prayer service on Friday.
One doesn’t get a much more blatant example of idolatry than this; maybe if one gives the “all-gods-are-the-same” argument. It would be interesting to see if the Muslims bought that argument or whether they saw this service as an act of quiet conquest. If Christians worshiped Christ in a mosque and lived to tell about it, that would be quite the moral victory, would it not?
Every year, previously in June and now near Reformation Day, Gethsemane Lutheran Church of Marion, OH, hosts a Conference on the Augsburg Confession. I had visited such conference three years ago, and I was fortunate enough to be able to go again. I could only attend on Saturday.
After Divine Service, the Rev. Dr. Roland Ziegler gave discussed how the word “doctrine” and “doctrines” were used in the Book of Concord. Summarizing some of his points:

I am curious whether Pete Rose knew his betting violation would solicit a lifetime ban, or was it just up to Bart Giamatti to bring the hammer. That said, Pete was denying that he did it for years, then he came out and confessed, rather than just admitting it right away.
If Pete gets “freed” then his endorsement potential should increase, but I’m not sure how much because most people have forgotten. There are players on the Royals who weren’t alive in 1985. I barely remember, and I’m no spring chicken.
I don’t know if he has suffered enough. Maybe he finally has. I’m not even sure he can sell Grecian Formula any more.
Wednesday evening I participated in a “core and hips” yoga class. Tendinitis in my heel has kept me from running recently, and I wanted to do something besides sit-ups. A local place had a 10 visits-for-$10 special, and while I won’t be able to do the other 9 visits, an hour and a half for $10 isn’t a bad deal.
The older gentlemen led the three of us co-workers in floor exercise. He babied me a little bit because of my heel, offering a ton of modifications. I told him that I didn’t have any self-esteem issues or a fear of failure; this was my first yoga class in years if at all.
