When two or three are together in my name, I am there among them. So Jesus is reproduced in the New Testament.
In late service on Sunday we were three visitors. And a pastor. Embarrassing it was not, but somehow quite personal. After a short two other guests were added. A child could wish for a song that knew it, it then sought is the St.Martinslied. The pastor told the story of spontaneous St.Martin, which indeed had to enter military service at the beginning of the 4th century AD, at the age of 15 years. She said that this is fortunately nowadays, at least in Europe, is no longer the case. One added later older guest said that he had to be with 15 soldier. He was probably as around 90 years. At the thought that someone is drawn at the age of 15 years as a soldier and have to kill people on command, to be placed against a wall to avoid being killed himself by the enemy or insubordination can shudder one today. we hope and we are doing everything possible for that peace in Europe might hold for a long time that the political actors are reasonable and the citizens are not in such a way can incite populist propagandists that could eventually break the European Union and countries are again against countries.
