Pre-convention meeting in St. Louis area, June 29 (by Pr. Charles Henrickson)
There will be a pre-convention meeting in the St. Louis area this Saturday, June 29, starting at 9:30 a.m., at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Arnold, Missouri. The main purpose of this unofficial meeting is to go over the proposed resolutions found in Today’s Business, which will be coming before the LCMS convention in July. Other convention matters will be discussed also. The Rev. Charles Henrickson will lead the discussion. The meeting will probably last around two hours. All are welcome to come, delegates and non-delegates alike, from Missouri, southern Illinois, or elsewhere.
It will be helpful to bring, whether in print or saved to your computer (linked here), any or all of the following four items:

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.
