Re: “Gratitude for the Lutheran teens who visited New Orleans

As we were looking for a place for breakfast on Thursday morning, we met a big man on a bicycle at Canal and Carondelet Streets. He invited us to his restaurant, HOBNOBBER'S, down the street next to Domino's Pizza. He and his kitchen crew served delicious eggs, omelettes, pancakes, bacon, and grits. He said that his name was "Big Dog." When he barked the place shook. He exuded enthusiasm and hospitality that we enjoyed every day in New Orleans. We worked on four homes in Musicians' Village, sponsored by Harry Connick, Jr., and Branford Marsalis, so musicians could stay and teach.
In the Upper Room, Jesus told His disciples to wash one another's feet as He had washed theirs (John 13:14). Then He added, "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another" (John 13:34-35).
We are grateful to the good people of New Orleans and to all who gathered. Truly, these words of Jesus came to life.

Yours in Christ,
Pastor Philip K. Smith
