"What News Of The North?"
-Edward "Longshanks" I, from the movie Braveheart.
Since when does one incorporate Braveheart quotes into news of the first mission congregation of the ULMA? Why, whenever possible!
On Sunday November 20, 2005, confessional Lutherans from the Milwaukee area congregated for worship and Bible study at a Holiday Inn Express. A total of 30 worshippers attended, 24 from the area and 6 from our congregation. Response was generally positive. I am anxious to hear of this weekend's turnout, as several persons who attended apparently stated they would bring others today.
Please pray with us that this endeavor would be a success, not in a numbers and dollars-oriented worldly sense, but in the way of teaching and proclaiming God's word purely, upholding the Lutheran confessions, and administering the sacraments rightly to sinful people.
