Well you may have noticed that I no longer post about the Confessional Crusaders. Yes I see no point in following their rediculous rhetoric anymore. Its always the same messages and if you follow it you are wasting time that is better spent in the kingdom. Once every so often I might scan the headlines so to have cured my curious fascination with their kind.

Our success at Victory is a testament to God's Word working through the hearts of those that have come to hear his Word whether it was through a community event, a children's event or a worship service. There are so many stories that have brought us from 6 people to 175 worshipping on Xmas eve in just 1 and 3/4ths years. Pastor runs 5-7 small adult bible instruction classes. We have run out of room for growth at the Polonia and already need a new place to worship. The level of individual committment to the church is phenomenal. I can't tell you how gratifying it was to see the amount of involvment from members to make our Xmas eve service so successful. The decorations and the enhancements and 25 people coming to prepare the facility for the service. The music and the video planning and rehearsals and their excellent sound.

All I know if this is the wrong way to be a Lutheran then praise the Lord because our success is only His fault. So no more wading through the murkyness of those who claim to be saving confessionalism. Instead I will focus on showing what confessionalism in action really looks like.

Hi Tim,

I couldn't agree more with you. Awesome post! I have adopted the same philosophy. They are a curious bunch.

You had posted a comment over at r and r church. For some reason it posted twice and when I went to delete one, they both were lost. Please feel free to respond again so I can actually read it and post/respond. Sorry about that.

Happy New Year and may the Lord continue to bless your labors.
