Harrison And Mueller

May 7, 2009

The time for congregations to begin the nomination process is quickly approaching.

I’d like to humbly offer some suggestions as that time arrives:

1. Find out how and when your congregation will decide whom to nominate.
2. Encourage your congregation to nominate Rev. Harrison for president!
3. Each congregation may submit two names for nomination as President. Even if Harrison isn’t the only name your congregation suggests, he should be one of them!
4. Remember the nomination process closes in March of 2010.

It’s also worth thinking about nominations for other offices, in particular 1st Vice President. This is the only full-time VP position, and a key leader who can greatly assist the president.

We suggest each congregation nominates Rev. Herbert Mueller of the Southern Illinois District.

Agenda: A Theological Approach to Unity

Rev. Herbert Mueller, Southern Illinois District President, presented for the first 30 minutes. He presented on how the way the Missouri Synod church leaders handled the election controversy, particuarly in the 1880s, could serve as a model for theological unity today.
