Embracing Culture

The Church in Vienna is represented by many cultures which adds color, variety and excitement to our services and congregation. I was so excited when the ladies honored me by presenting me with a beautiful African dress. On Sunday I wore it with confidence and pride.

To see the smiles on their faces when I came in gave me such joy...I am so happy to embrace the cultures that the Lord has given to the church of Austria, and I thank the ladies for involving me in their traditions.
