". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

Brothers of John the Steadfast Hold First International Conference

This weekend my congregation was privileged to host the first international conference of the Brothers of John the Steadfast, a new confessional Lutheran organization. (Even though the organization was organized by men for men with the purpose of supporting men in their role as spiritual heads of households, women are welcome to participate, too).

It was a great weekend. Actually, "great" doesn't do it justice, but my adjective-generator is feeling sluggish this morning. Luckily, there is no need for me to wax eloquent about the goings-on of the conference, because you can see photos, read all about it and even listen to all of the presentations and worship services by clicking here.

Here are a few pics I managed to snap this weekend:

Pastor Timothy Rossow and Rev. Todd Wilken, host of Issues, Etc.

No pietists here. They look pretty good for having been awake until 2:00 a.m. in the morning, don't they? (You party animals!)

Everything looks wonderful. We'll go next year, provided it's held somewhere in the Midwest!
