Pastor Conference
    While in South Dakota last week for the Augsburg Lutheran Churches pastor conference, Pastor Lou was invited to attend a gathering of the Southern Idaho pastors, at which one of his ILT seminary teachers will be presenting, October 12-14.  All LW classes (confirmation, History, and Table Talk) are cancelled this week due to his being out of town for that conference.  There is no cell phone service at this camp location, unfortunately; internet is spotty.  Sorry for the inconvenience!
