A Highlight of Today's Convention Proceedings . . .
took place when Resolution 6-01 was brought to the floor, which resolves "To Commend LCMS Disaster Relief Work, Particularly in Haiti." Before the resolution was brought to the floor, a video was shown depicting the Haitian relief efforts, and then a delegation from Haiti took the stage and gave their thanks for the wonderful support they have received. The resolution was passed 1110-9 (99% - one wonders who in the world these 9 delegates are who voted against this!) You can watch this great moment here
