We let our congregations know this morning, as promised.

"We're going to have a new member join this congregation," I told the home church, "but they won't be a member until February." I let there be a little be a silence after announcing that. I noticed the ladies that always sit with Genevieve looked at her right away. Some got it a little later. I couldn't wait any longer, so I let the full cat out of the bag and let them all know that we were expecting our first child the first week of February and that by the second week, our child will gain entrance into the Kingdom of God through the merits of Jesus Christ in the washing of Holy Baptism.

"We're doing out part to grow the church," I told the second church. Again, I let there be a little bit of silence to let them ponder it a bit. It wasn't too long before a "Congratulations" came from the organist up front. Again, the anticipation got to me, and I had to let the full cat out of the bag.

It was fun, but now it's time to try and celebrate the holiday.
