This one is really hard to figure out. I mean the 47th regular (were there some irregular ones?) convention of The Lutheran Church — Missouri Synod. Undeniably there were some high moments; there were some equally evident low, very low, happenings. I have read all that has been printed since July and have interviewed about fifty brethren, tried and true. They differ widely on what actually happened. The optimists and the pessimists are sharply divided. At times they even read the same resolution in diametrically opposite ways."
