Prayer Request and Personal Message

Prayers are requested today for the work of the WELS Committee for Interchurch Relations as they meet with the ELS Doctrinal Committee. Much is to be discussed, a few items in particular that a previous post dealt with. Pray that our leaders follow the advice of St. Paul when he writes.

"Your attitude should be the same as Christ Jesus, who being in very nature God did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, and being born in human likeness took on the very nature of a servant."

Let God be glorified in all our work.

A Personal request of mine: I got my first comment today! Thank you Rachel, my sister, a member of Crossroads (Lutheran) Christian Church in Chicago, IL. I've been there. As much maligning as it recieves because of its decision to not put Lutheran in its name, I have always been duly impressed as scripture was taught in its truth and purity even though Luther's name was not on the doorpost.

If we could, so I can get a better handle of who's reading the site, please comment on this message with just a "hey Mike" or something of the same. And please in the future leave little comments so I know that I'm not talking to myself over here.

Hi. I just discovered your blog. I've been wandering around the confessional Lutheran blogosphere and am glad to find another WELS voice.

Caught your link on Facebook, so I checked out your blog.

If you read my comment at WELS Theology under "Lady Deaconesses" you already read this, but my circuit pastor is on the CICR and told us a little bit about this, and my DP is in our circuit, so he could comment too.

I pray that we continue to work together as brothers to resolve this from Scripture.
