After being postponed from the previous year, the 62nd Synodical Convention of the FELSISA took place in Wittenberg from 19 to 21 August 2021.
In total 39 delegates and pastors gathered to discuss and vote on various proposals. Associated members and official guests brought the total number of attendees to 47.
Between administrative duties (like financials, pension fund, and medical aid), and various other reports, constitutional changes, and motions involving practical and theological considerations, attendees watched Rev. Dr. Nathan Meador (Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod) address the Convention via video on the topic of stewardship.
An essential part of Christian living, stewardship starts with repentance and involves much, much more than just the topic of money. Importantly, stewardship must be taught. Dr. Meador’s presentations greatly enriched Synod, and you are encouraged to watch it for yourself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfNvLSXHEWY.
