Congregations Matter extends its congratulations to President Harrison on his victory in last week’s Synod presidential election. We join the church in praying for God’s richest blessings upon him as he carries out his important responsibilities over the next three years. He must work to collaborate with the WHOLE Synod to provide more transparent, fiscally responsible, and trustworthy leadership.
Last month a A Michigan congregation mailed a pamphlet to Synod to encourage us to “Imagine More…” What would it be like if our Synod had more collaboration, transparency and trust?
Watching these informative videos will allow the 12,000 pastors and lay electors of LCMS congregations tasked with voting for a candidate for Synod President in the June 22-25 online election to make a more informed choice. Maier and Klinkenberg are excellent choices for Synod President.
In an open letter to Synod leaders, 16 veteran district presidents agree it’s time to replace President Harrison with new leadership. They support Maier or Klinkenberg as our next Synod President.
In a welcome speech intended to energize his supporters and gain nominations at the Concordia Theological Seminary Fort Wayne (CTSFW) Symposia Series, President Matthew Harrison raised the fears of his audience with the specter of Fort Wayne being “on the ropes” in the near future without him as Synod President. Really? Nothing could be further from the truth.
Last week, Congregations Matter became aware of irregularities in the voter registrations of five congregations affecting the vote of seven churches. Let’s make sure all registered votes count!
The March 24th deadline is here. Each congregation must register their pastor and a designated lay person with the Synod for them to be eligible to cast their congregation’s two votes in this June’s Synodical Presidential election! Are your congregation’s electors registered?
