One of the perks of being a pastor is spending time in the Word. Yes, a lot of it is simply “work.” But can you study a pericope and NOT discover something new? And, often enough, an hour or two has suddenly gone by and we get to sit back with a smile and say with King David, “Your testimonies are my heritage forever, for they are the joy of my heart” (Psalm 119:111).
Register now and plan to join our speaker, Rev. Dr. John Nordling of Concordia Theological Seminary in Ft. Wayne, Ind., as he explores “The Joy of the Journey.”
