Congratulations to President Harrison

Meanwhile, belated congratulations to the faithful and courageous earthly leader of my own church body. The Rev. Dr. Matthew Harrison was elected last week to a third term as president of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod

Ours is a conflicted and divided denomination. But it's been blessed in having President Harrison to guide it, The storms may howl and the winds may blow, but the One Whose voice once calmed them on the Sea of Galilee calms them still.

The Word of the Lord indeed abides forever, to quote the Reformation slogan, and as Isaiah proclaimed, it does not return to Him empty but prospers in the thing for which it is sent forth.

May President Harrison and faithful pastors everywhere be upheld by our prayers and by that Word as they share it with a sick society and a dying world which desperately needs it.
