If You Liked the Symposia You’ll Love The BJS Conference, by Pr. Rossow

Two of the Three BJS Speakers Spoke at the Ft. Wayne Symposia!

Rev. Fisk

Pictured here are Rev. Jonathan Fisk and Rev. Bryan Wolfmueller. They each presented exegetical papers at Ft. Wayne this week and each is being featured at the BJS conference in February. (Click here for details.)

Rev. Wolfmueller

Rather than presenting exegetical papers, at the BJS conference they will be addressing the new Lutheran media, one of our BJS distinctives, and giving us a backstage look at the production of their respective shows, Worldview Everlasting and Table Talk Radio.

Joining Revs. Fisk and Wolfmueller will be another young buck, BJS’s own Associate Editor, Pastor Joshua Scheer, who will be speaking about the propriety of spending time reading internet sites about Lutheran doctrine and practice.

We have enjoyed our time at the Symposia which is clearly “the” confessional Lutheran event of the year every year. We have seen and been able to greet many of the BJS faithful including Johannes, Scott Diekmann (creator of the Stand Firm blog), Hope Lutheran – DeWitt, MI congregation chair Dennis Peskey, regular poster Martin Noland and many more.

If you enjoyed the Symposia, you will certainly enjoy the BJS Conference. See you here in Chicago in a few weeks!

  1. The problem with Symposium is not enough time and too many confessional Lutherans. You’ll not find this problem anywhere else this side of parousia – but I have confidence the BJS conference will do a good work as well.

  2. In case anybody is wondering, in the photo of Pastor Wolfmueller, the lapel pin he’s wearing reads “I’ll stop saying ‘synodical’ if you stop saying ‘missional.'”
