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.

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.

Jeffery ClarkYep, between LACE (which means offering money) being a "presenting sponsor" ($5000) and a few other organizations and vendors, I am sure Luther Days (LLC - for profit! LLCs can't be non-profit in WI) took in at least $10,000.
Jeffery ClarkI have skin in the game, so my opinion is obviously biased, but knowing that there were people in the synod actively working against the Return to Wittenberg conference (which was held at WLC in July), I would wager they saw Luther Days as a potential contender that they could control.
