This morning, we will be worshiping here: The Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Augsburg Confession in Austria. Even better, our friend Jady, who is a curate for an Episcopal church in the city, will be preaching. This will be my second church service in Europe. The first was in Liss, England while I was at L´Abri (where somehow they conned me into reading scripture). I know that a church building does not matter in God´s economy, but there is something awesome about worshiping in a church building that is centuries older than the United States. It will be a great way to spend our last morning in Vienna.
We´ve survived our first sticky nights in a hostel. I have to admit, I miss our apartment in Prague. But I´m glad to be getting the hostel experience, even if it means listening to people talking loudly all night in the hallway and smoking outside our open window. It felt like trying to fall asleep inside someoneś cigarette. Overall, I don´t think the hostel life suits us, but it sure is cheap.
After watching the Wimbeldon finals this afternoon, we are headed to Salzburg! It is supposed to rain on Monday, so we have decided to stay in the city for an extra day. Hopefully, we will have a chill day with lots of reading and journaling. Somehow, we haven´t done much of that in a while. Currently, Iḿ working on Slaughterhouse Five by Vonnegut. After Salzburg, we will be in Munich for Germany´s next match!
Oh yeah, and Happy Birthday, America! Unfortunately, all of my red, white, and blue clothes are dirty at the moment…
