Roster Used by Bishop Against Traditional ELCA Pastors and Parish
Little did I know that the issue of roster and control would be so timely... HERE is a link to the goings on in Clear Lake, Iowa, where the NE Iowa Bishop is using the roster to discipline and even eject ELCA Pastors who disagree with the position the ELCA has taken with regard to sexual orientation and the Church and sexual orientation and the clergy. The parish itself passed a first vote to leave the ELCA and narrowly lost the second vote to leave but did join one of the organizations providing a fall out for such traditional ELCA parishes (LCMC).
