Get Those Nominations In!

If your congregation hasn't yet sent in its form to nominate a candidate for LCMS President and other postitions for the 2010 elections, you'd better get going. Congregational wheels of progress often turn slowly, and the nominations are due by March 10, 2010.

My congregation is nominating Pastor Matt Harrison for President, and I hope your congregation will as well. Pastor Harrison is the Executive Director of LCMS World Relief and Human Care. He's certainly got the upper level bureaucratic experience required for the job, and I like him because he's a regular guy. Matt is from Iowa, and being a Midwesterner myself, I appreciate his down to earth demeanor. He's also someone who is interested in theology, and knows how to apply it to everyday life.

Rather than listen to me blather on, check out these resources if you don't already know Pastor Harrison. The trip will be worth your time, as will sending in that nomination form!
