Crumbled have spires in every land!
Here stands the font before our eyes
Telling how God did receive us;
The altar recalls Christ’s sacrifice
And what His table doth give us;




AC V has left a new comment on your post "Downward Trends for Synodical Sinecures":

"Madison student chapel next?"

Looks like it's already coming down, crumbling that is...in Lutheran worship practice. At the chapel dedication service if it weren't for the gown Trapp is wearing, you'd think it was an E-Free congregation complete with praise band, screens, and without an altar and font:




Willowcreek's Little Chapel

Praise band. Check. Movie screens. Check. No altar. Check. No communion rail. Check. No baptismal font. Check.
Box on wheels pulpit. Check.




Trapp spent millions on the building and joined the Willow Creek Association, twin goals of Church and Change. Doctrinal deviancy is a plus in WELS: the less Lutheran, the better.
