Since we have three top notch speakers but  do not have a central theme for this year’s conference  I asked the Steering Committee to brainstorm clever titles. Leave it to the wit of Charlie Henrickson to come up with a real knee-slapper: “Todd, Mollie and Klemet: The Fired and the Staff.”

This is a play on Klemet’s very successful book published by CPH   titled “The Fire and the Staff.” Well, with a little twist one ends up with the fired (referring to Todd’s history at KFUO) and the staff (referencing Mollie & Klemet as the two BJS “staff” bloggers.)

Todd Wilken, the popular and profound host of Issues, Etc, will be keeping us in touch with the primary arena of BJS fund-raising – new Lutheran media. Klemet will be insightful and entertaining as usual. (We talked about his theme weeks ago and must admit I have forgotten what we discussed and since he is teaching over in the Philippines for the Luther Academy and has limited access to e-mail, we will announce his theme in a few weeks.)

We are most enthused about having Mollie Ziegler Hemingway speak to the conference. As far as I know this is the first opportunity for folks to hear from this hero of new Lutheran media. Mollie will be sharing with us some insight and background on her life as a writer and supporter of the confessional cause.

The conference will feature

  • Todd, Mollie and Klemet – “The Fired and the Staff”
  • Historic chanted liturgies
  • Bethany Naperville’s legendary hospitality
  • No Pietists Allowed Parties
  • Friday night “banquet” (if you can call pizza a banquet entree)
  • Pastor Rossow’s Manly Breakfast
  • Saturday lunch (all meals are included in the registration fee)

The conference will be held at Bethany Lutheran Church, Naperville, Illinois (Chicago suburbs) begin with a welcome reception at 4:00 PM on Friday, February 12  and conclude on Saturday with lunch. The cost has been held at the same price as last year: $40 for members, $50 for non-members with a special $60 rate that includes registration and one year of membership dues. There is also a $25 student rate.
