From the Field Oct. 2, 2014

This month yet again we commemorate what God did through the Lutheran Reformation. What better way to celebrate God’s work of restoring to the church so many basic truths of His Word than to preach and teach these? We did just that at Grebenhain, Germany on Aug. 29-31, when various conservative Lutherans gathered for a Free Conference. On the first day there were 24 in attendance while on the second at least 32. While we came from different Lutheran backgrounds, we all had the same goal of upholding the truth of God’s Word. But because we did not know if we agreed completely, we did not practice fellowship. We did hear eight essays and had lively floor discussions. There was also that entirely wholesome chatting at meals over a variety of matters. The distances travelled from the Swiss border, the Dutch border, Berlin and so on were worth the effort to sit and hear and speak of God and His will and Word and work. The CLC or as we are known in German the KLB was glad to sponsor the meeting.

Being in Germany I also had the pleasure of visiting several homes witnessing the faith of the people and the desire to continue in the Word. May God bestow on us His grace, With blessings provide us, And may the brightness of His face To life eternal guide us…The Luth. Hymnal #500
