I grew up in a Missouri Synod Church and attended an ELC college in the 50's What a wonderful book.

I grew up in a Missouri Synod Church and attended an ELC college in the 50's. My pastor did not think I should go there, as it might make me too liberal. He was right-it did. What a great read-but not for Lutherans only. They have all loved it and recognize the time when we all attended church and it was the center of our social life. Too bad that is no longer the case.

This book reignited old memories of growing up in the Swedish Lutheran Church. The Authors Janet Letnes Martin and Suzann (Johnson) Nelson must have walked the walk. I grew up in this period and eveything that they report is the absolute truth. My grandmother was a member of the legendary Martha Society and probably cooked more chicken that Perdue has ever processed. I roared with laughter over the church characters portrayed. I stayed in the Church mainly because of the Walther League. I went to the Conventions and eventually met my wife and we have ben happily married for 48 years.
