Former Presiding Bishop Mark Hanson Came to Advent

He seriously is a great preacher. At the end of his sermon, we laid hands on our neighbors and prayed together. He’s one of two people I know who could get away with this. This is one of my favorite images from the day.

Another bonus is that he remembered meeting me. I met him first at an ELCA Fund for Leaders banquet in 2010 and then I kept going up to the microphone at the ELCA churchwide assembly in 2013. He either has an awesome memory or I just make a great impression on people.
