Christmas at St. Therese

Here’s a photo of my friend, Fr. Brian Lehnert, pastor of St. Therese of Lisieux Catholic Church in Wellington, Florida. We are standing in front of the beautiful Fontanini creche display at his church. While Fr. Lehnert and I are deeply and firmly committed to our own faith traditions, his Roman Catholic and mine Lutheran, we also give thanks for God’s gift of friendship, which can transcend denominational boundaries. This, dear friends, is “old school” ecumenism: never compromising beliefs while always treating each other with civility and respect.
