Dreyer and I have made it to Concordia University in St. Paul, MN. What a wonderful place. This is my first trip to CSP. Being a Concordia graduate (River Forest...now Chicago), I love seeing another Concordia...it is like a bond. Have you visited any of our schools? Which ones?

(BTW, he told me that the 50 foot pipes for the organ were built right into the poured concrete...which means that the low notes make the floor shake just like Isaiah 6. WOW!)
