We're more unified now than we were an hour ago

Mollie Hemingway has sent a letter to President Kieschnick, responding to his contention that the Synod is strongly unified.

Dear President Kieschnick,

In your letter to the editor of the Wall Street Journal, you wrote that I paint a “false and misleading picture” of the LCMS “as a deeply divided church.”

Respectfully, I take issue with what you wrote.

The first article in the January 2008 edition of Board Briefs talks about the plan to restore harmony coming out of Resolution 4-01A of the 2007 convention. The article describes how members of the BOD and COP “met in small groups to identify those issues in the Synod thought to be causing the greatest discord.”

While the entire list of 20 issues proves my point, I might direct your attention to this item listed as one of the major problems in our church body:

“Failure to recognize the severity of the division in our Synod.”

In Christ,

Mollie Ziegler Hemingway
