Praise and thanksgiving to our Lord, the Shepherd of His Church! I have learned that the Concordia University Wisconsin Board of Regents has apparently responded to the pastors and people of the LCMS and its home District by repudiating the Wokeism of the previous administration in no uncertain terms. To be honest, I believe I … Continue reading End of the Church Year – Beginning of a Season of Reformation at CUWAA?
