“Confessing the Faith” in Bloomington, April 21-23 (by Pr. Charles Henrickson)

“Confessing the Faith: In Light of the Lutheran Confessions” will be the theme for what looks to be an outstanding conference in Bloomington, Minnesota, Wednesday-Friday, April 21-23. Two sessions by Matt Harrison, and a speaker from Sweden! What more could you want? But wait, there’s more! Take a look at the full line-up of topics and speakers:

The Lutheran Confessions – the Model for Christian Confessing, Rev. Dr. Holger Sonntag
The Theology of Ablaze – Confession or Confusion, Rev. Glenn Huebel
Critical Events, Altar Calls, Conversion Experiences, and Other Ways to Avoid a Lifetime Commitment to Jesus and His Word, Rev. Rolf Preus
Confessing the Faith in an anti-Christian Culture, Rev. Fredrik Sidenvall (from Sweden!)
Confessing the Faith – the Christian Vocation, Dr. Gene E. Veith, Jr.
At Home in the House of My Fathers (Part One), Rev. Matthew Harrison
At Home in the House of My Fathers (Part Two), Rev. Matthew Harrison
Confessing the Faith in a Sea of Baptists, Rev. Rodney Rosenbladt
The Confessing Luther, Rev. Dr. K. Detlev Schulz

The Thursday evening banquet speaker will be Rev. Dr. David Scaer. At that banquet, awards for “Confessional Lutheran of the Year,” clergyman and layperson, will be given out. Last year’s winners were BJS’s own Todd Wilken and Mollie Hemingway. On Wednesday evening there will be a reception at the home of BJS’s Klemet Preus.

The confererence is called “A Congress on the Lutheran Confessions,” but don’t let the word “Congress” turn you off. What you get out of this Congress will actually be worth the money! Having attended a number of these, I can tell you it’s a great time. The event is co-sponsored by two excellent organizations, the Association of Confessional Lutherans and the Luther Academy.

For more information, go to the Association of Confessional Lutherans website, theacl.org, and from there you can find the Congress agenda, the Congress registration form, and details on discounted lodging at the Ramada Mall of America (please reserve by March 31).

See you in Minnesota!
