I can never know enough about Lutheran doctrine. I converted to the Lutheran denomination after studying the Roman Catholic and the 'Reformed' [Calvinistic/Zwinglian] interpretations of God's Word.
Currently I also serve as a volunteer Lay Hospital Chaplain, and as the Editor of my Parish's Newsletter.

After searching for some time no evidence was found of my baptism, even though I was told by my (dcd) parents that I was Baptised. Nor was any evidence to be found that I was ever confirmed in the Christian Faith. On Monday 22 September 2014 my Pastor will correct this for me and my wife in a private event. Praise God for his care.
Through the life stories of my patients in Hospital, my life experience has been deepened and enhanced. Some souls maintain their faith until the very end of their mental capability, and yet, sadly, some blame our God for their misfortune, the only service I can offer there is to pray that they may have peace with their situation. In a busy life I do not always find the hours to pray as I want, but in - last thing at night - meditation I confess this all to my Lord. Please pray for those who have drifted away from God.
