Our convention concludes tomorrow and everyone will be headed home! All the displays have been removed, the “Yeas” and “Nays” have all been recorded, most people are tired and ready to be back home. The proceedings of this convention have been recorded and will be printed and sent out. As we arrive back home we once again engage with the local ministry which is a part of our personal lives. Some of the encouraging things will be shared as well as the discouraging. Everyone did not agree with everything that happened. That is not surprising in our fallen world. While we know “councils can err” we also take the work of the convention seriously and to heart! We strive to truly “Walk together” – even though we know it sometimes looks like we are “stumbling” rather than walking. Be that as it may, we are brothers and sisters in Christ bearing witness to Him everyday! On to “The Big Easy” for the National LCMS Youth Gathering starting This Sat!
