They are Coming from the Four Corners of the Country to the BJS Conference, by Pr. Rossow

January 30th, 2013 Post by

As usual, we have people from far and wide coming to the BJS conference. Registrants currently touch all four borders of the country, north, south east and west. we’ve got people coming from the state of Washington, Connecticut, Texas and Wisconsin.

Go on line and register for this great two days of feasting on the Word made flesh. the Word preached and taught, all the protein and fat you could imagine, wine, scotch, beer and stogies. (I’m not sure you actually feast on stogies but you get the point.)

Rev. James May is going to tell us about his great work of making Lutherans in Africa. Pastor Wolfmueller will be telling us the story of how God made a Lutheran out of him using the raw material of an Evangelical. (That may be a greater miracle than creation ex nihilo.) And Pastor Fisk is going to be telling us about all the exciting new stuff that BJS is going to be doing to use new media to make Lutherans out of thin air (the internet).

Whether you are from north, south, east, or west it will be a direction changing two days of growth for you (at least as far as requiring you to loosen your belt one more notch).

Rules for comments on this site:

Engage the contents and substance of the post. Rabbit trails and side issues do not help the discussion of the topics.  Our authors work hard to write these articles and it is a disservice to them to distract from the topic at hand.  If you have a topic you think is important to have an article or discussion on, we invite you to submit a request through the "Ask a Pastor" link or submit a guest article.

Provide a valid email address. If you’re unwilling to do this, we are unwilling to let you comment.

Provide at least your first name. Please try to come up with a unique name; if you have a common name add something to it so you aren't confused with another user. We have several "john"'s already for example.  If you have a good reason to use a fake name, please do so but realize that the administrators of the site expect a valid email address and also reserve the right to ask you for your name privately at any time.

If you post as more than one person from the same IP address, we’ll block that address.

Do not engage in ad hominem arguments. We will delete such comments, and will not be obligated to respond to any complaints (public or private ones) about deleting your comments.

Interaction between people leaving comments ought to reflect Christian virtue, interaction that is gracious and respectful, not judging motives.  If error is to be rebuked, evidence of the error ought to be provided.

We reserve the right to identify and deal with trollish behavior as we see fit and without apology.  This may include warnings (public or private ones) or banning.

    Hey…you left out Florida! ((If addressing the “four corners” was your intent!)) Can’t wait to see you all in Naperville!
