Quote from: Dave Benke on January 13, 2012, 02:46:31 PMI know many who were mentored by Guido, a Synodical Vice-President who was unafraid of parish growth. His son played a little in the NFL. I was impressed to hear one time that he had enough juice in San Antonio to get an exit off the freeway for Concordia. That was of course at the old parish campus; they've long since moved out a ways. The LC-MS today in national missions is really focusing on the urban and inner-ring suburban areas as zones for renewal, vitalization, and outreach. The model of moving out as the people migrate toward the suburbs was for good or evil begun in this country by none other than St. Matthew's Lutheran Church in Manhattan. They began right down there near Trinity, Wall Street. As the Germans moved northward, so did the church, eventually winding up on 204th Street right at the top edge of the borough. Here's the deal. Had they stayed down on Wall Street - just think about it!Dave Benke
