Rastaman Visits the IC

Rev. Dr. Larry Rast from Concordia Theological Seminary visits with President Harrison.

Dr. Rast is author of Rastaman Vibrations where he "deals with stuff that interests him -- especially American Religious history, Lutheranism, the Pennsylvania Railroad, obscure music, and Africa." Other than the Pennsylvania Railroad, Dr. Rast can find all of his listed interests in President Harrison's Office.

A Little Bit of Africa

Yet visiting President Harrison wasn't Dr. Rast's primary purpose in coming to the International Center. He came to interview on video people who have been involved in Black Ministry. Dr. Rast began this project at the Synod Convention in Houston, TX.

We look forward to seeing the results of Dr. Rast's interviews on the LCMS' work in black ministry.

  1. I promise to bring something from the Pennsy related to Lutheranism next time I visit. President Harrison has given the office a marvelous Lutheran feel through books, images, and appointments that reflect his ecclesiology.
