In America of recent years, we often hear the phrase “Separation of Church & State!”  The Blaine Amendments in the state laws use this as their fundamental argument.  Thank the Lord for the recent Supreme Court case (7-2) involving an LCMS entity in Missouri.  [Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia, Inc. v. Comer] That separation is being defined and clarified.

As the LCMS website declares, we are “Free to Be Faithful” and we are to be active in the public square.  In matters of Church & State, Collaboration, Cooperation, and Communication can and should be our focus as good citizens who live and lead in this great nation.

Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.”  Romans 13:1

We will learn about Collaboration, Cooperation, and Communication as in the State of Nebraska we are subject to Rule 10 or 14.  In the State Department of Education we have new leadership in the compliance department that provides oversight and accountability for non-public schools.   Brad Connor & Kim Snyder will share with us what they are finding as they do compliance visits, clarify what you can do to be ready for your visit, and share the process for follow-up after the visit.

We learn about Collaboration, Cooperation, and Communication as we hear from the Nebraska Catholic Conference, which represents the public policy interests of Catholic schools, the largest of the nonpublic school systems in Nebraska. Tom Venzor is the director of the NCC and also one of the key people we work with for legislative issues.  He will talk about how we work together and how we can be active advocates with regard to legislative issues, especially educational choice.

We learn about Collaboration, Cooperation, and Communication as we further explore one of the programs available to our schools through the ESU system in Nebraska.  We will hear from the ESUCC Cooperative Purchasing Program.  Craig Peterson leads that effort and we are invited to participate.  This program is a major stewardship effort for our ministries.  During this session everyone will be able to login to the portal and experience the program. Bring along an electronic device you can use to login and experience the program offerings.

Finally, we learn about Collaboration, Cooperation, and Communication at the end of the day as Bob Ziegler will share about our Nebraska District initiatives and efforts for the new triennium.
