Symposia Rooms at Hotel Fort Wayne (formerly the Marriott); Sabre Nominees Sought

We're moving back!
Hotel Fort Wayne will be accommodating our guestroom needs once again during the Concordia Theological Seminary's Symposia (20-24 January 2014). 
Formerly the Marriott, this hotel is under new management, but still a great place. We thought it worth a little extra for a great upgrade in hotel.  It’s at 305 East Washington Center Road.

The following arrangements have been made for Gottesdienst.

         Guests may call the hotel at 260-484-0411 or toll free at 855-322-3224 and ask
for the group rate for Gottesdienst.  


         They may go to the online booking link to see more about the hotel.

         King or Double standard guest rooms are available Sunday, January 19th -
Friday, January 24, 2014.
         Event price for standard guest rooms will be at a special rate of $89.00 and that includes their superb breakfast for up to 2 guests per room.
         The cutoff date for the event is Wednesday, January 8th. After that time can no
longer guarantee rate. Rooms will no longer be on hold so reservations will be
subject to availability and best available rate.
         The check in time is 4:00 pm and check out time is 11:00 am.

The high point of Symposium week for us Gottesdiensters is the announcement of the recipient of our prestigious Sabre of Boldness award, in the student commons after the symposia banquet, on Thursday, January 23rd.
The Sabre ceremony is in its nineteenth year.  The list of recipients includes parish pastors, district presidents, bishops, some well known and some unsung heroes of the faith, and, as of last year, a lay woman. 
Nominations are invited.  The award is given “For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity on behalf of the Holy Church of Christ while engaged in the confession of His pure Gospel in the face of hostile forces and at the greatest personal risk.” Submit a nomination to Fr. Eckardt via e-mail.  State the name, address, and telephone number of the nominee and the reasons why he or she is a fitting choice for Sabre Bearer.  The degree of the adversity, steadfast resistance to pressures to compromise, heedlessness of threats, and a clear confession of faith are considered.  The slate will close on Tuesday, January 21st
