I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4

Thursday July 22nd, 2010
1:00 P.M Opening Worship - Pastor Paul Steinberg/Koine
1:45 P.M Make Your Mess A Message/Duck Tour - Heather Franske
What are you doing about the mess from your past?  Is it still there tucked away nice and neatly or is it continuing to create havoc and worry in your life?

Pastor Paul at the 2009 Rally

Everyone has a past to deal with. While we cannot change our past, we certainly change our response to it. We can either allow our past to defeat us or we can harness it, and use it for power in our lives today and tomorrow!

God will use Heather as a single teen mom to share with the group that no matter how messy our lives get, or how many obstacles we come across, sharing our victory through Christ will help others with their personal struggles.

Heather Franske

Make your mess into a message

Heather is 18 and recently graduated from High school. She is a single mom, and has a newborn baby named Kendall. She will talk about the struggles and trials she has overcome and the breakthrough victories she was able to accomplish because of her fearless faith in her Savior Jesus.

9:15 A.M Never comprise your faith.- Sy Vannisaveth
Anything that's worthwhile, whatever course you decide upon, there's always someone to tell you you're wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and to follow to an end requires some of the same courage which all Christians need.

8:00 P.M Fearless Faith To The Core - Pastor Ski

When you're fully committed to Jesus Christ, you have already died to self (the hardest loss of all) and you have been raised to a brand new life (eternal life which no one or no thing can take away), so you can be fearless even in the face of death. Are you at the place in your life where you have turned from your sins and placed faith in Jesus? Then and only then can you experience the blessing of a fearless faith to the core.

9:15 P.M Unleashing God's Word into your Fearless Life - Brian Arthur Lampe

Is this the life of a fearless faith Christ's followers are called to? God challenges believers to break out of our personal safety zones and share Christ through acts of love, intelligent conversation, and genuine compassion. Even teens are needed to step out in faith and point others to the salvation found in their fearless faith in Jesus!

GJ - For those who remain clueless about who is running WELS - this national rally is a Jeske/Time of Grace/Church and Change operation. Ski is on the Chicanery board and worked for Jeske before joining the Appleton Dumpling Gang. Lampe is on the Chicanery board and works at Jeske's church.
Steinberg works at Jeske's church.

Nothing new about that. When Wayne Mueller put the Perish in Perish Services, as the first administrator, the youth and adult education leaders left posthaste. They were replaced by men with new titles - Adult Discipleship and Youth Discipleship.

The Columbus WELS Rally was managed by LPR, the "first WELS CG agency" (not really - The Love Shack came first). Three divorced pastors ran that rally - Floyd Luther Stolzenburg, Roger Zehms, and Marc (not the SP) Schroeder. Floyd never joined WELS and Marc took his congregation into the LCMS. They had a rock band there, too - Soter.

Well, this is just ducky! Maybe church and change considers getting pregnant outside of marriage "adiaphora"? What in the world are these folks thinking? If I were in a leadership position, I would scrap the plans for this rally and start from scratch. Some of the pastors involved are in their late 30's or early 40’s. Are they having a mid-life crisis? I would like to can the whole group. I have teens, and this is not a rally they will be attending. It just seems things are getting worse instead of better! I really do think that they have made their mess into a message! I am ashamed to admit that I belong to the WELS.
