The Grace of God in Christ

Dear Christian Friends, I was just reflecting on the joy it is to be truly evangelical. That is to possess a faith that is rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Each week I and all who gather are priveleged to hear the Word, spoken and preached. Each week I and all who gather receive into our mouths the true body and blood of Christ. We cannot be bound closer to God than this -- just some thoughts about our great heritage as Lutherans - I pray our synod is preserved from all the spiritually vague, religiously fasle, poitically correct protestantization -- I will be praying for the work of the convention.

Unfortunately, our synodical convention has become less theologicial and more about compromising on any number of issues that are really not relevant for a synod. Seems to me we have many fluff, feel-good resolutions, which are nice, but do we really need to spend time on them? On the positive side, the theme "One message: Christ", now that's a proclamation that we can and should be about each Sunday through the Word and the Sacraments -- they are about and bring to us the one needful thing: Christ crucified and risen.
