Who Said Conservatives Can’t be Cool? Edgy Endorsement for Harrison

For years President Kieschnick’s supporters  have claimed that the confessional, liturgical, traditionalists in the LCMS are opposed to progress and against change. The video below by Rev. Jonathan Fisk (a BJS regular) is proof that such a claim is just  not true. One of Pastor  Fisk’s latest  video productions is a great, edgy endorsement for Rev. Harrison for LCMS president.

Conservatives are not opposed to change, technology and new ideas. We simply use new media where it does not get in the way of the Gospel and also keep from letting the  media becomes the message. This video is a great example of how many younger pastors and LCMS congregation members are tired of the old “modern” ways of doing things and are ready for some good ole’ banjo-strumming, genuine  leadership for Missouri.

Note –  The first half of the video is an excellent defense of the notion of truth. The Harrison endorsement starts about four minutes into the video. Also, the video was prepared at the request of Cross-Focused Leadership for Missouri; be sure to check their What Others are Saying section for other postings.

  1. Where can I get the Walther graphic? I would like to use it as part of my promotion for a study of Law & Gospel.

  2. “One side keeps telling us that we’ve talked.” lol. Exactly.

    Somebody should make a t-shirt of Walther’s face that looks like one of those Che Guevara tshirts.

  3. With no words. Just Walther’s face. Maybe guys could wear that to the convention instead of black shirts.

  4. Greetings,

    Use the pic whenever/wherever. I actually had the idea from this blog last winter, and there is a link to it somewhere way back in one of the posts, but rather than making Norm search for it, I’ll dig it up…..


    Just don’t steal my bandwidth. 🙂

  5. I’d rather wear Matt Harrison’s face on a T shirt. 🙂

    But I see your point.

    G’nite all! Blessed Sunday!

  6. A small correction,
    As a friend of his, I can attest truthfully that Rev. Fisk is in no way, shape, or form “cool”. 🙂

  7. Love it. Could bundle t-shirts with copies of the new Law and Gospel Readers edition.

  8. Thanks for the help! I will be using it next year for a “year of Walther”.

  9. I dunno about houston, but I will be making shirts to sell online for the Show, and at least one will include the pic. As I’ve said, anyone is free to use the pic as they will, but there will be tshirts coming from my end eventually.
