Bruchmuhlbach-Miesau Parade

The adjoining towns of Miesau and Bruchmuhlbach had a parade today for "volunteer activities". The parade featured bands and restaurants, marching teams and volunteer fire fighters. The local Lutheran Church took the bold move to enter its Sunday School in the parade, which meant missing church today to march in a community parade. Is that compromising with culture or creatively engaging it? I spent some time visiting with the wife of the co-pastor team and am convinced it is a creative way to engage the community with the reality and vitality of the local church. There was a whole lot more beer given away at this little parade than anything I've seen in parades in the States!

Hold it, hold it. THere was beer given away? Well, THAT'S why the Lutherans got involved...

Seriously though, I agree, this is creative engagement.
