On Tuesday, 7 October, Dr Mundt and the Evangelism in the Parish class spent the day at the Norfolk County Fair.
We were not there for the pie judging, the carnival rides, or even the intense rivalry played out in various competitions between area high schools. It was “youth day” and that meant lots of children and youth wandering through the exhibit halls. Many could be coaxed into spinning a wheel and answering a Bible trivia question in hopes of winning an apple or one of the other prizes available in the Lutheran Churches of Haldimand booth. Lutheran Hour Ministries provided the materials, including free DVDs for daily draws.
Such in-the-field practice is always part of the Evangelism class and varies from year to year. The goal is to assist a District congregation with its own ongoing outreach efforts. This year we are working with Rev. Dan Abraham and St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Simcoe. Pictured are class members Sue Knowles, Andrew Cottrill, Roland Starke, and Paul Schulz, along with Dr Mundt in front of the fair booth.
