"We are called not simply to look back on what was, but, honoring and appreciating all that was, to go forward with new ideas to win the hearts of sinners for Christ. Our Synod’s success in meeting that challenge, under the forgiving love and grace of God, will play a significant role in determining our Synod’s future—innovation or extinction?" (Rev. Gerald Kieschnick, August 5, 2010) Unless we adopt GK's "new Ideas" we face extinction? I don't think so. President-elect Harrison and the critical mass of faithful LCMS pastors and people will prove him wrong.
