Ichabod explores the Age of Apostasy, predicted in 2 Thessalonians 2:3, with an emphasis on UOJ, Church Growth, and Emergent Church heresies. The antidote to these poisons is trusting the efficacious Word in the Means of Grace. John 16:8. Most readers are WELS, LCMS, ELS, or ELCA. This blog also covers the Roman Catholic Church, Eastern Orthodoxy, and the mainline denominations.
The Glory Has Departed
Lutheran book boxes sent to three African seminaries -
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
On Wednesday morning, July 29, an electrical fire broke out in the home of Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod President Matthew Harrison and his wife, Kathy. While the fire caused heavy damage, we give thanks and praise to our merciful God that no one was injured.
It appears the accidental blaze began in the basement while President Harrison and his two sons were at home, but they were able to get out of the house quickly. While many possessions may be salvageable, portions of the house were destroyed, and the internal structure was seriously compromised. Smoke and water damage was sustained throughout the home, and insurance adjusters are now working to determine if the house will need to be rebuilt.
Meanwhile, President Harrison and his family are staying in a hotel until temporary lodging is obtained through the insurance company. As the Harrisons take the necessary steps forward, please pray for strength and comfort in their family vocations during this process. The prayers and support of all are deeply appreciated by the family.
