It’s not just another meeting. At least it’s not supposed to be! Synod Assembly is truly about celebrating the ministry we do together as the people of God. We conduct necessary business, of course, but we also see how the Holy Spirit has been working in and through our synod this past year (or last 2 years!). This year we will also have the privilege of electing a new bishop to the La Crosse Area Synod. We will pray for the Spirit’s guidance in this process and by Sunday afternoon the La Crosse Synod will have a new bishop.
This is an exciting time for our Synod, and so I want to extend an invitation to everyone to watch the proceedings of our assembly. Although you will not be able to vote (unless you are a voting member), I believe you will be able to witness the Holy Spirit at work in the larger church. So, click on this link and you can join us all day on Saturday (8a-5p), for Worship at 9 am on Sunday or after worship as our new bishop is announced.
Please be praying for our voting members (Christine Jacobsen, Dan Crego, Clara Krause & myself) this weekend as we take part in this assembly.
Come, Holy Spirit, Come,
