Greetings, Bronco family! It is spring time at Walther, and we are busy with all that entails: spring sports, Senior events, final exams, and graduation preparation. It’s been a long year, begun with much uncertainty, but our Good Shepherd has seen us through successfully.
I’ll share a quick story from earlier this month, just to give you a flavor of Walther. I had the opportunity to tag along with the Christian Minstrels as they led a chapel service at St. Andrews in Park Ridge earlier this week. OK, I was actually the substitute bus driver and chaperone, but it was such a pleasure to see our young men and women stand up in front of a church full of elementary school students and share the Good News! They did it all entirely by themselves (having been extremely well-prepared by the fabulous Lori Boyer): songs, scripture readings, prayers, and an original skit. Walther is producing confident young men and women who will be leaders in our church and our world. Even better was listening to them on the bus coming back to school talking among themselves about how they handle different kinds of prayer requests from the young students, from prayers for cats to prayers for grandma who has cancer. They encouraged one another in their faith. Then one student said, “Guys, isn’t it great that we go to a school where we can do things like this?”
Amen! And, I hope to see you all on June 4 at our second annual Bucking Bronco 5K Run/Walk!
