  1. Gee whillikers, I’d sure like to be there. What are chances of getting his talk via the internet? Wouldn’t it be great if all the delegates could hear him? With only a month to go, this would be great opportunity to get his name known even better.

    So–what can we do?


  2. Found over on Cross-Focused Leadership for Missouri:

    On Friday evening, June 11, there will be a special wine & cheese reception for convention delegates and their pastors. Space is limited, so interested parties should RSVP with the host pastor, Rev. Don Meyer. Trinity is located at 5289 C Ave, Marcus, IA . The phone number there is (712)376-2666.

    This venue is within driving distance for eastern Nebraska, Southeast South Dakota, and Southwest Minnesota. It’s good Lutheran country, so we hope to see many of you there!

    Know of any delegates in the areas? Make sure they are aware of this opportunity to ask questions of Pastor Harrison!

  3. Darn and I am in SE Iowa, 230 miles from Marcus. How some of my home town folk from Galva, IA. get to see Matt Harrison up there in NW Iowa!

  4. Great title, I thought it would be something like Jesus after the resurrection. If he just drove there, the least he could do would be to hand out bread and fish.

  5. I’ll be there… I’m the pastoral delegate from the Storm Lake circuit – IA. Anyone need a ride?

  6. In the context of his speech, “The Mission and Ministry of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod for the 21st Century,” Rev. Harrison should certainly be asked about whether he supports BOD decision in favor of a cooperative LCMS/E_CA Lutheran Malaria Initiative, which the BOD made at its August, 2009, meeting Rev. Harrison attended along with Lutheran World Relief President and Chief Executive Officer John Nunes, who promoted the LMI by noting that 989 of 1,000 ELCA delegates at its churchwide gathering had voted in favor of participation in the initiative. Nune also spoke of the “unprecedented monumental partnership” that has come together to defeat malaria, including the United Nations, Lutheran World Relief, and numerous Lutheran church bodies and other organizations. He spoke of the “global impact” eight million U.S. Lutherans could make, some Lutherans possibly seeing this as an opportunity to become more active in their local churches.

    Rev. Harrison could be asked whether he is aware of any better ideas of how to spend the proposed $20 million to be raised by LCMS congregations distributing mosquito nets in Africa (rather than, say, providing for the effective use of DDT) to reduce cases of malaria in Africa while carrying out the Great Commission in a faithful and confessional Lutheran manner.

  7. This Saturday or last?
