This is an older Blazek cartoon never published on BJS but we thought it was fitting for the upcoming Regional Gatherings at which President Kieschnick’s hand picked Blue Ribbon Task Force will try to persuade the LCMS convention delegates that we should change and give unprecedented power to the synod president.
The gatherings start early next month in Denver. Delegates are being wined and dined in expensive hotels with the cost being passed on to the congregations. Isn’t that ironic. All the President’s men propose to take away much of the authority of the congregations and then make the congregation’s pay for the fancy meetings at which they seek to persuade the delegates to do so.
