I would like to let you know that I appreciate the open and honest discussion that has been occurring. Aaron chose the title for this blog some have suggested a name change. Some funnier than others. But it seems we do need to be patient and hope we don't grow tired of bailing. Maybe we do need to start treading the waters of Lutheranism as we wait for the ship to be righted. I also want you to know that I am studying and growing through what I have been reading. I have also been doing research.
As you know I have conveyed that I am offended in my faith by what seems to be a synodically sanctioned link to the Church and Change registration on wels.net. I have contacted the synod office about this offense. I have been assured that this and other policies are under review.
I do invite any other comments on the questionable practices I have presented. I am trying to grow in my patience with my perspective and understanding. But I am shocked by some of what I have seen. Yet I am also aware that there are many faithful pastors clearly presenting the Word and holding up the sacraments. I honestly believe that a deep study of His Word and the Confessions is the way to guide the ship. I do mean that the clergy lead the people through a study of the Word and Confessions.
