Sunday was a day of rest–in two different ways. First, rest for the soul in the Divine Service at Immanuel, preaching and administering the Sacrament. We just got back Friday from Higher Things in Maryville, MO, another excellent conference for the youth. This year we had 5 youth, myself, and two other adults. Sunday afternoon, we went with a few of the members of the church to the Prairie Moon Winery in Ames, IA where we enjoyed some Sangria, and some live Classic Rock. Very restful as well. The time went so fast, we got there at about 2:30 and suddenly it was 5:30. We met some others from the church there too. Gordy Lubbers, who helps run the winery, was celebrating his birthday, and so there were good snacks as well. Here are some pics from the event.
