A few of my favorite pics

In the middle:  Jesus, bestowing His blessing upon these faithful servants



Post-Vespers Pow-Wow



Attending an afternoon seminar with Rev. Matt Harrison:  Freewill offering
Gas expense to make the trip:  $20.00
The opportunity to chat with the next President of the LCMS and have him sign your copies of his excellent books:  PRICELESS!

The opportunity for the chairman of your board of elders and his wife to sit and chat with the next President of the LCMS:  PRICELESS! 



Me, pictured with Rev. Todd Wilken, host of Issues, Etc., at the BJS conference last February




Chris Rosebrough (Pirate Christian Radio and Extreme Theology) and Scott Diekmann (Stand Firm) - two of the most outstanding lay theologians in our midst today!  I took the pic and, just before I snapped it, instead of telling them to say, "Cheese!," I told them to say, "Rick Warren rocks!" (Chris thought it was funny; Scott - not so much) - :)



 Happy to finally meet Scott in person



Serving as Lector during Vespers at the first annual BJS Conference - quite an honor!

I am a Lutheran MS elder at St.Luke in Clinton Twp. It is so nice to see a Lutheran Pastor blogging. Keep up the good work
