Faith for the future

Congregation records faith stories

Kurt Lammi, pastor of St. Paul Lutheran Church on Dog Leg Road in Dayton, Ohio, this year did what countless pastors and confirmation leaders have done before, but with a twist.

photodiscHe asked adults to share their faith stories with confirmation students — one guest a week for 30 weeks. Not bad for a congregation of 85 worshipers.

Early into the year, he decided to record the speakers. At the end of the 30 weeks, he burned their approximately five-minute faith talks onto two CDs for the students, speakers, the rest of the congregation and the church's archives.

As a result, he's got a head-start in celebrating the congregation's 200th anniversary in 2016.
