November 2019 Pilgrim Connection
Over the river and through the woods to New Ulm, MN we go as the Pilgrim Connection follows Pilgrim delegate Joel Bradtke to the 65th Biennial WELS (Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod) Convention. "The synod convention is sort of like a fire hydrant wide open. You get so much information so fast." --JoelPosted by Pilgrim Lutheran Church & School on Sunday, November 24, 2019

GRIEVING IN HOPE
I so enjoyed reading the article “Grieving in hope” [Nov. 2019]. Our 11-year-old daughter went to heaven over 20 years ago. The pain of losing her is still real today. Tears come at the most unexpected times: her favorite hymns, a story she liked to hear, hearing about another sick child, and the list goes on.
She is missed so much by our family, but the greatest comfort is knowing we’ll be in heaven together someday. We thank our Lord and Savior for giving us this hope and comfort.
Regarding the November issue. To all of you who work on this wonderful magazine, thank you! All the articles are beneficial and encouraging in our walk with Jesus! I was particularly happy to see the one on suicide.
I’ve come to our president of MLC’s article [about recruitment]. Excellent. May I suggest gatherings of public high school kids to inform and encourage them to study at MLC? God be praised for his finding these [students] also to serve. It happens!
WALK BY THE SPIRIT
I am asking for clarification on a series of articles under the title “Walk by the Spirit.” When I began collecting this series (which originated with the May issue), I understood it would be for six installments. However, there was another installment in November 2019, which was cited as a “concluding article.” This series is outstanding and very inspiring! If there will be future articles under the original title, that would be great. Professor Braun is a gifted person, and I always enjoy his writing. I look forward to future issues.
Good catch! We did add one extra article to the series. We’re glad you enjoyed them.—ed.
