"Church Structure"

My church body, the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod has gathered people together this week for the Convocation on Structure. As you may know, some within the LCMS have been promoting a need to change the structure of Synod. A Task Force was assembled, their report is done, and this is the first meeting where the Powers-That-Be present what they have been working on what changes they will persuade us to make.

Boring Church Politics? Probably. Important? You bet. Many have been trying to predict exactly how things will go down and what changes to expect. Most believe it will not be good for those of us in the LCMS who are liturgical (the so-called Evangelical Catholic). Some think that not much will be accomplished, that the Powers-That-Be may be overreaching.

If you have LCMS connections and are still not interested, follow this link and be persuaded to keep abreast of what is happening.

I'm sure there will be more to report in days ahead.
