Busy day. Floor nominations came out of the wood work and that took a LONG time. Finally delegates grew impatient and called to end allowing them. Now sitting on the Board of Directors is Pr. Michael Kumm (as in the man with Todd Wilken as associate) and Pr. Vic Belton (old friend from Bronxville and the seminary). The entire slate of laity from the United List was also elected to the board. Amazing.
Cin and I have enjoyed running into folk again: today I finally caught up with Scott Yakimow for a moment and had a nice talk with Jim Butler. It's been a delight to chat now and again with Dr. Mundiger and Judge Neely Owen. Oh and whole bunch of others I'm not remembering at the moment.
We had dinner at a Chinese restaurant with the Bowers. Looking forward to a quiet evening and early to bed, I think. Tomorrow is another day...
Oh, and I must confess I have NEVER in the entirety of my years in the ministry felt more optimistic about the future of the Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod.
