Pastor Enderle and Pastor Ruddat attended the same summer quarter course (in fall) from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary on discipleship. A book from Thom Rainer posits that one way to address the church membership losses that christian churches are experiencing is to revisit what does it mean to be a church member, so we review the book from a Lutheran perspective. Pastor Will Harley also joined us this week, and helped keep the conversation moving.
Passages read from the Evangelical Heritage Version.
