1 July 2010—Resolution Proposals Due
15 August—Reports from the commissions, committees, and boards of the synod are due
While life can have its predictability – something we actually rely on – God continually does new things for his people. We can think in terms of his providential care (the sun still rises) and most importantly the rescue achieved through his Son which was something so radical, so new, that the world didn't see it coming and so many today find it hard to believe – that God would justify the ungodly by making his sinless Son to be sin for us. Synodical conventions can have their predictability too. Yet God continues to do new things for his Church as he comes to serve them so that they may serve the world. Among the familiar there will be new faces, new resolutions, new Chairman, and a renewed enthusiasm for the new things God is doing!
