Czech churches


Brno, CZECH REPUBLIC, April 11, 10:30 p.m. local time – I’m settling down to write after a full day. We attended church — Brněnský seniorát. The service was held in Czech. I could follow a couple of words on the Powerpoint for songs – “aleluja” for “hallelujah” and “hosanna.” Part-way through the service, the church provided interpreters for everyone in our group, which was an extremely thoughtful gesture. Brněnský seniorát will turn 10 years old in August. It was planted by members from another church, and is comprised of people of all ages, but especially young adults and children. God is at work there in helping them grow. Our local contact, Rick, attends church here.

After church, we had a very long lunch with Rick, an elder and the senior pastor.  We dined at an Italian restaurant, which name translates to Coliseum Pizza. The food was excellent, and our conversation centered on religion in the U.S. and the Czech Republic; energy, since the elder works in the energy industry; and Southern culture (such as saying Coke when ordering a cola).

After lunch, four of us walked to a castle. While we didn’t tour the inside, we walked to the top, which has a magnificent view of downtown Brno, and took lots of great photos of the architecture. Then, we met up with the rest of the group and attended an English-language service at Majac (the “j” is pronounced as a “y”). Majac is a mission affiliated with the Wesleyan Church, and happens to be the first location I will do consulting at. Josh, Julian and I will meet with some of Majac’s leadership tomorrow. More details will follow as soon as possible.
