In this Adventures in Lutheranism episode, Rachel begins a multi-part odyssey into the unknown world of some of the church’s most unsung heroes: the altar guild.
Beginning with a brief look at what the altar guild is, what it does, its history, and its scriptural foundations, Rachel then outlines her top seven (or is it ten?) reasons—from ironing to anxiety to white gloves—for never having joined the altar guild before now. At the end of the episode, Sarah shares her own experience as an altar guild member, and Rachel looks forward to learning more in future episodes.
