Church Experience #17 – May 1, 2011
Trinity Lutheran Church, Hixson, TN
Laura and I had planned on visiting a different church this week, but due to the loss of power at that church from the storms that passed through the area, we had to find an alternative. I live in Hixson, and drive by the intersection of Hixson Pike and Highway 153 pretty much on a daily basis. Elevated just above this intersection sits Trinity Lutheran Church, calmly peering down on the flurry of activity that consumes the surrounding roads, restaurants, and stores. I had never attended a Lutheran service before, so I thought this would be an ideal time to experience a new denomination without having to wander too far from home. We pulled up the church driveway and parked, noticing a large tree laying on its side with its massive root ball facing the parking lot…as if we needed another reminder of the recent weather related devastation that had hit our area in the previous days. Walking by the downed tree, I squeezed Laura’s hand and refused the urge to go over and get a closer look, doing my best to refocus my attention to this week’s church experience. (I have included some additional post-storm thoughts after the end of this blog article)
