Worth your listen...

Shamelessly borrowed from the Stand Firm website and worth your attention, even though it is long...

President Matthew Harrison’s Q & A at the Northwest District Convention

Here is the video of President Harrison’s appearance at the recent LCMS Northwest District Convention. It’s well worth watching. A few highlights:

At 31:38, President Harrison addresses his view of the implementation of the new synodical structure that was imposed at the last national convention.

At 34:50, his views on women’s ordination and the role of women in the church.

At 41:30, how he exercises ecclesiastical supervision.

At 48:30, what the plan is for the National Youth Gatherings.

At 50:40, his view on Licensed Deacons.

At 55:51 begins the long conversation regarding an LCMS pastor who communes with his wife at an ELCA church. First a pastor asks President Harrison about this case, followed by the unionistic pastor’s sister.

At 1:05:36 is the conversation with the pastor who doesn’t know if homosexual attraction is sinful. Listen closely. This pastor embraces Gospel reductionism.

At 1:17:17, President Harrison’s thoughts on the Specific Ministry Pastor Program.

Oops. Always proofread!

It is good to have a president who is unafraid to say when things are not as they should be. I get really tired of "positivity."

"The business model works." Great that our leader knows where that model does and does not belong.

I will leave comments on the details to others....
