Speaking of Synod and Districts...
It's all over the web today: the MN South District BOD has voted to sell the University Lutheran Chapel's building, probably to a real estate developer, for no less than $3.2 million. Read more about it here. The congregation and pastor don't want to lose their building. Wouldn't even the Fugger bankers give the congregation and pastor until the end of the year to raise a competitive bid? Doesn't that seem like the minimum of human decency?
Check out the link above and let the district office know that you are willing to send in a donation. Ask them to give the congregation time to raise the funds.
UPDATE: I tried to call Pres. Seitz (952-223-2150) - his voice mail says he will be out of the office until Sept. 28th. Go figure.
