Subject: "Shallow Waters" Podcast

Dear Dr. Horton,

I just finished listening to your Podcast entitled "Shallow Waters." I have one quick comment about this Podcast. I remember coming out of Sunday School in the late 1950's early 60's and my mother asking me, "What did you learn today?" Today, I hear parents ask, "Did you have fun?"

I appreciate your broadcast. The topics are very thought provoking and your comments are very insightful. Sadly, I no longer have Issues, Etc. to listen to. Their removal came two days after my congregation and I resigned our respective memberships in the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. Our desire is to remain faithful, being captive to the Word rather than indulge the world with its "Karaoke Christianity," the crude, amateurish imitation of Christianity that thinks its the real thing because, well, it says it is.

Thank you for taking time to read my email.

Rev. Douglas Handrich
