Atlanta in August? Not for this old guy.
Retired ELCA pastor. Iowa born. Now in Minnesota. Say what you will about polls, but all current polls show that a significant majority of Americans agree with the things I have been saying in this modest form.

I know at least two folks, who aside from the glaring character fault of being my friend, are squared away ELCA clergy types who are going. I have been teasing them about RoMinCon I. I have asked that they post the cosplay pictures to their FB feeds.

I think I've got somebody lined up to write a report. Of course you have to be a subscriber to get the print edition.  8)

One hears that Bp. Eaton had a wonderful & inspiring keynote. But one, alas, was not given the details.
