Today, our congregational representatives, Gary and Wendy Lankki, are attending the in-person Gathering of our association, Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ, in Arden Hills, MN. I will be watching online with others who will hear keynote speakers, adopt the ministry budget, and witness the installation of the new Service Coordinator for LCMC, Pastor Mike Bradley.
I am grateful that God continues to bless the ministry of LCMC, that faithful congregations, pastors, and members continue to share the message of Jesus in truth and sincerity. I am strengthened by the growing witness of LCMC and the global partnerships that we have developed. Also, as we begin a new phase in our association, I am also grateful to be part of Augustana District and the work we share for the sake of the Kingdom. Let us pray for church, for the ministry of the Word of God, and for the will of God to be done in, with, and through us.
Soli Deo Gloria (To God Alone be the Glory)!
