Like the blog? Check out the conference! Register by Monday night for the 2013 BJS Conference

February 8th, 2013 Post by

ConferenceAmong the flood of stories going on right now at BJS I wanted to remind all of our readers (and many of the new ones) that if you want to have some great times among Lutherans come to the National Conference of the Brothers of John the Steadfast on February 15-16th (yep, next week already!).  Registrations close on Monday night, so get your them in quickly.

If you are new to the site and are interested in our organization and what it stands for, the conference may be a great idea.


Some things to see at the conference:

  • Lutheran clergy and laity hearing solid teaching by Pastors Wolfmueller, Fisk, and May.
  • Lutherans enjoying worship together and hearing preaching by Pastors Sikora and Fiene.
  • Lutherans tasting some great food in things like the dinner on Friday (Chicago style pizza, accompanied by the stand-up comedy of Pr. Wolfmueller) and “Manly Man’s breakfast” (women are allowed as well) and the lunch with commentary by Pr. Rossow and myself.
  • Lutherans gathering for various “No Pietists Allowed” parties on Friday night.
  • Lutherans getting to know some of the new authors for BJS.
  • Lutherans getting updates on what 2013 will hold for BJS on the web, in other media, and hopefully in your parish.

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.

    “Lutherans gathering for various “No Pietists Allowed” parties on Friday night. ”

    “Drinking! Smoking! Gluttony Too!
    The latest notice on the “No Pietists Allowed” gathering scheduled for Illinois later this month.
    –David Becker

    When they say “No Pietists Allowed,” does that mean that those who actually believe in justification by faith alone and oppose the errors of Roman Catholicism are not allowed either? Don’t worry, such “pietists” would not WANT to come. We’re not opposed to alcohol in moderation and we have occasional alcohol in moderation.
