Swedes & Finns Work Together!

This breaking news is not about two struggling Lutheran churches deciding to work together, but about another struggling enterprise – the Philadelphia Flyers.  The last place Flyers will now have a Swede (Peter Forsberg) and a Finn (Sami Kapanen) playing together on the team’s top line.  Desperate times call for desperate measures, I guess.

No word yet on how local Lutheran congregations – most of which have German origins – are responding to this breaking news, though a few are said to have responded to the ethnic cooperation with a mixture of confusion and curiosity.  "We’ve never done it this way before," said Hans, a Lutheran layman, scratching his head.
