Opportunity #1

You've heard about the survey on Synodical restructuring taken by the Blue Ribbon Task Force on Synodical Structure and Governance (BRTFSSG) at the District Conventions.

Eric Ramer, Stephen R. Johnson, Ken Meier, and Robert Rodefeld have now duplicated the survey, which you can take online. I assume they will pass the results on to the Synod. You can let your voice be heard here.

Opportunity #2

If you are uninformed about the proposals from the Blue Ribbon Task Force on Synodical Structure and Governance, the Lutheran Catechetical Society is offering the Rev. Dr. Ken Schurb's examination on DVD. This 1 hour, 13 min. presentation was given at the Feb. 9, 2009 Lutheran Catechetical Society gathering in El Paso, IL. Copies are available for $20 (which includes Priority Mail shipping) by visiting The Lutheran Catechetical Society's website or by sending a check or money order to:

The Lutheran Catechetical Society
c/o Trinity Lutheran Church
202 W. Lincoln St.
PO Box 268
Roanoke, IL 61561

Opportunity #3

A request from Pastor Paul McCain:

The Treasury of Daily Prayer has been a big hit and just this morning I was telling a group of people, "People who have it and use it, love it. But when I say 'love it' that is an understatement."

Here is my request.

Would you please send me, in a 100 words or less, your personal reaction to the Treasury of Daily Prayer? And would you have your friends who are using it, or members of your congregation, also send me those comments? Feel free to post this request to your blog, web site, e-mail groups, Facebook pages, etc.

Please invite them to send their reply/response to:


Please ask the person making the comment to provide their name and location. Many thanks.

Submission of comments is done with the understanding that we may quote them for marketing and promotional purposes.

I'm looking specifically for comments about how the Treasury of Daily Prayer has helped, changed, improved, enhanced, revolutionized (?), your life of prayer and meditation on God's Word and the same for anyone else willing to share a thought/comment.

Many thanks,
