Photos of Bishops, Delegates, and First Pastor of the Kenyan Lutheran Church Locked Out by Obare, by Pr. Rossow

Here are a few photos from the debacle in the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Kenya (ELCK). I have been posting stories about Walter Obare locking duly elected delegates out of the recent ELCK convention. This morning I received photographic documentation.

Two months ago then presiding Bishop Obare called a church-wide convention for March 27. The first problem was that he sent the invitation to select parishes. The greater problem was that he did not allow dozens of duly elected delegates into the convention.

The locked out delegates included three bishops and the very first pastor of the ELCK, 80 year old plus Rev. James Otete. Can you imagine C. F. W. Walther being locked out of an LCMS convention?
