I was thinking yesterday that is an incredible blessing to be able to sit at my desk in Saint Louis and watch The LCMS Convention. I must confess I’ve been a tad grumpy about the audio problems and the poor quality of the video stream and the fact that there are not helpful prompts on the screen, like, the constant display of the resolution number under consideration, poor lighting in the hall, blah, blah, whine, whine, etc. But then I realized, “That’s stupid. Sure, they need to make improvements, but what an amazing blessing it is to have the technology that allows members of the Synod to watch the convention.” It makes you feel like you are there. I thought I’d show you my “convention configuration” on my desk. All the essentials for making sense of a convention:
Today’s Business, No. 1
Copies of each day’s “Today’s Business”
The LCMS Handbook
The Lutheran Annual (contains lists of all boards, commissions, etc.)
Oh, yea, a picture of a good looking girl is also helpful.
