Two Kingdoms

Today I’m at a pastors conference. As I sit and listen to the speakers I’m feeling a tad bit reflective on the state of the church and on the state and the church. There are certainly two kingdoms. I’m thankful His is not of this world! This is the steeple on top of Concordia University Ann Arbor’s chapel (Ann Arbor, MI.). As you can tell it’s fully equipped as a cell phone tower. The flag pole is about 50 yards in front of it.

Vicar’s Crucifix

This small crucifix hangs on the wall of the office that the vicar occupies during his year of service at Trinity Lutheran Church in Palo Alto, CA. Add some grunge, a little blur, and a touch of vignette in post production and this little reminder of Christ’s crucifixion does just that in photographic form.
