Revs. Charles Henrickson and Daniel Preus present for Luther Academy to Indonesian pastors on the topic of “The Two Kingdoms.”

My trip to Indonesia for discussions between the LCMS and the Gereja Kristen Luther Indonesia (GKLI) – Indonesian Christian Lutheran Church corresponded with a Luther Academy event on the two kingdoms in Medan. This fortuitous correspondence allowed Rev Daniel Preus, the fourth vice-president of the LCMS, to participate in the discussions with the GKLI. The GKLI began in 1965 as a breakaway from the Huria Kristen Batak Protestant (HKBP) – Protestant Christian Batak Church. The GKLI has the Augsburg Confession as the basis of its confession.
