Matt Harrison's Acceptance Speech.

This is wonderful. Watch it. We've been waiting so long for this.


  1. Quote: "Luther says when you’re walking along and you strike your little toe on a chair or a table, a table leg, what happens is the whole body bends over, the face grimaces and grabs that little toe. And there’s no use saying “that’s just a little toe,” because the whole body suffers."

    I think our new Pres.-elect was referring to LW 69:78, in the new series of Luther's Works (CPH). Great stuff!

  2. It was short and sweet. I think he served notice that he will not be a hounding president. For one, I am glad. The last thing we need right now is a president who tries to eliminate the "other side." I hope that he's able actually to help our synod unite behind the word of God. Nothing could be more important than seeking the Lord in His Word.

  3. I agree. Now it's time to put our shoulder to the wheel to support moving to unity with the focus on the Word and the foundation of the Synod. I feel hopeful about the church for the first time in a long time. I am ready to do my part. Jack, thank you for this blog.
