With November 4th just around the corner my thoughts have turned to the election of our Synod's President in 2010. Whereas in civil politics (an oxymoron?)men and women put themselves forward for office - we in the Church are taught (and I beleive rightfully so..) that the man must never seek the office but rather that the office seek the man. I firmly hold that is how it took place here in the North Wisconsin District. The Lord our God rasied a man from among us and -- he has been a faithful servant. So...since the call to president comes not from anyone seeking the call (is the election of president a "call" as we understand it either historically or confessionally?) WHO WOULD YOU OFFER AS NOMINEE FOR SYNOD PRESIDENT?
