Are You Coming to the Fort?

The Lutheran Concerns Association Annual Conference is on January 18, and the 2010 Symposia Series at Concordia Theological Seminary is January 19-22, both at Fort Wayne. I’m planning on attending each of them, so if you’ll be there as well, I hope you’ll track me down, or send me an email ahead of time (click on the button over in the right side bar to email me). I’m looking forward to the fellowship as well as the excellent teaching.

The LCA Conference will include discussions on the Blue Ribbon Task Force on Synod Structure and Governance recommendations, synodical finances, my friend Joe Strieter speaking on the Transforming Churches Network, a panel discussion on the need to retain the seminaries (my friend Pastor Tim Rossow is in on this one), and more. The Symposium at CTS includes for its exegetical portion the topic of "The Sacraments in the Scriptures," and for its Confessions portion the topic of "God: Past, Present, and Future."

I hope I'll see you there.

Johannes will be there.

I'll be there, of course, trying to hold together the Confessions section... or keeping the Systematics department in check.

Somebody's got to keep those profs in check! I'll look for you. Us fellow bloggers have to stick together.

Now how am I supposed to find an anonymous guy named Johannes?

I wish I could! I was planning to, but January is a horrible month to get away from work. Too many things delayed from the Christmas break to get done.

How do you find an anonymous guy named Johannes? Well, he'll be wearing a name tag that says, "HELLO MY NAME IS ANONYMOUS."

He'll still be incognito, and anonymous, but he'll be Johannes. No shades, tho. Too obvious.

Johannes, the Dry
aka Anonymous, the unknown
aka Incognito, the unrecognizable

I'll be at both for all of them. Would be nice to meet a fellow Nebraska runner (and confessional Lutheran)
