Some Sobering Thoughts

...over at Extreme Theology.

Just two comments, one solemn and the other with a wink and a nod:

1. The 2010 LCMS Convention is fast approaching, and structural changes are already being considered and planned.

2. Why do I think of the Star Wars saga, especially Episodes I, II, & III, when I read this (and think of its implementation in the LCMS)? :-)


  1. Star Wars?

    I was thinking of the Borg threats in the Star Trek series.

    "Resistance is futile - you will be assimilated."

  2. "Although the "Confessionals" have left me scarred and deformed - my resolve to set the church Ablaze has never been stronger! Therefore, the Synod will be reorganized as the First Lutheran galactic Empire!"

    Hmmm. . . I wonder what solid pastor will get defenestrated before the convention now.

  3. 2010? Um, isn't there supposed to be a restructuring convention or meeting or whatever already in 2009?

  4. Anastasia,

    That was the original plan, but it has been changed to 2010, as a preliminary process of some kind before the regular convention. I'm not sure on all the details at this point, but that's the last report of which I know.
