Rev. Wright - Valpo Connection

One of our congregation members (jokingly) asked me when Rev. Jeremiah Wright might be scheduled to preach here, since he held a Doctorate from one of our schools.

What? He then explained that in the Chicago Tribune, a recent article pointed out that Wright received an honorary doctorate from Valparaiso University in 2002.

Here's the article. Did you know Wright had this "Lutheran connection"?

Oh, apparently one of the Professors from LSTC is also a member of Wright's congregation, and is quoted in the article too.

I would hardly call that a Lutheran connection! By golly, it is Valpo! I didn't think they were Lutheran anymore!
