Steadfast Lutherans will be having periodic updates on the convention, so stay tuned here as well.
This weekend, May 27-29, the Floor Committees will be meeting in St. Louis to prepare the resolutions that the Convention will take up. This is an important and sometimes difficult task. But it must be done. Following this weekend’s meetings, the first issue of Today’s Business will be prepared, containing the bulk of business that the delegates to the 2016 Convention will consider and then gather to discuss and vote on in July. We will highlight when that issue of Today’s Business is available. In the meantime, let us pray for the safe travel and faithful work of all those serving on Floor Committees.
Almighty and merciful God, You have given us Your Word in order that we would proclaim it to the whole world. As we go about this task, we ask you to guide us to do so in ways that are according to Your will. Guide those who are serving on Floor Committees, that they would carry out their work with joy and thankfulness to You. Protect them as travel, and make their homecomings joyful. We ask all this in the name of Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
