WELS should merge with Osteen in a few years.
At least he does apostasy well.

This month, the Commission on Worship is asking called workers and laypeople alike to start making plans to attend WELS National Conference on Worship, Music, and the Arts held every three years—this year July 19-22 at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minn.
The first worship conference I attended was in 2008, and I was not disappointed. I came away marveling at the many gifts and talents that God has given to people in our synod [GJ - and many other denominations, including Roman Catholicism]. Those gifts were on display in the inspiring worship services and in the many workshops that were held. Some of us are not very emotional people by nature, but there were times when the beauty of the music and messages left very few dry eyes.
The worship conference is designed to celebrate and encourage our Lutheran liturgical worship heritage—Christ-centered and gospel-proclaiming. But that doesn't mean it will be stale and stodgy. Quite the contrary. Attendees will experience new and fresh musical settings that they will want to take back to their own congregations.
You will be loaded.
Our worship is intoxicating.
Your spirits will be lifted up.
