Why I was disappointed at church Easter morning:

During the preaching of the Word and sacrement of Baptism my theological radar was set too high. I found it hard to put away my reformed six-shooter and rejoice in the gospel. I was looking too hard through my scope to find an enemy to see how the Holy Spirit was moving.

Said theological underpinnings became useless because the foundation that the Scriptures lay out are meant to support joy, not squash it.

I think there's a helpful medium. I pray, by God's grace, that I get there soon.
