This year’s synod voting process takes on a new form with the use of an electronic voting system. Delegates are each given a hand-held device that allows them to quickly and easily enter their votes. This helpful use of technology allows the voting process to occur quickly and efficiently. Results are available immediately. Delegates were given “practice” votes in order to become comfortable with this exciting new method.

Friday, April 28 — Psalm 55:16–19

Job 34:1–28; 1 Corinthians 7:25–40

Blessed be God who has sent his angel and delivered his servants who trusted in him. Daniel 3:28

Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared and a light shone in the cell. He tapped Peter on the side and woke him, saying, “Get up quickly.” And the chains fell off his wrists. Acts 12:7

Release us this day from those things that imprison us from growing closer to you, O God. May we always seek the shining light of our Lord and Savior to help brighten our lives. Amen.
