I have an "It's Time" of my own

It's Time.

It's time to quit lamenting that the ELCA is on the road to hell in a handbasket.

It's time to stop holding out dreams that anti-homosexual scraps and dissendents will some how suddenly revert to confessional Lutheranism magically.

It's time to abandon dreams of some uber-national-confessional Synod.

These dreams of glory are just damaging, distracting, and full of despair.

Instead, it is time for a change.

It is time to strive to restore fellowship with those who had stood side by side with Missouri from the beginning of our History.

It is time to focus on finding ways we can restore unity with those who already hold a Quia Subscription to the Confessions.

It is time to shift the efforts we throw at the ELCA onto Wisconsin and the ELS.

It is time to seek to restore the Synodical Conference.

Some of us in other parts of the country are working toward the beginning of what might be a beautiful friendship between LC-MS and WELS/ELS.

More to come soon, God willing.
