Earlier this week, I attended a portion of our Indiana District's southern regional pastors' conference. What I experienced was quite good.
Matt Harrison from LCMS World Relief spoke on the whole connection of showing mercy in living out our faith. Excellent points on faith in action, loving neighbors through our vocation, and building relationships with the communities surrounding our parishes.
I also had a good heart-to-heart with President Dan May. Pastor May has been very encouraging and supportive as District President. Lots of wisdom and kindness for the clergy in his care. Thanks, Dan, for your willing ears and kind words.
