Insert Knife and Twist...
read here the minutes of the MNS Board of Directors meeting with the details of the decision to list the ULC property. The minutes read a hidden message to ULC that is unmistakable. It is as though the BoD were saying, "You lost. We won. We will look generous and give you some cash. But you can't have the organ or furniture. So there!" BTW it is not as thought the BoD has any use for it since the mission model there is The Alley and the only use they might have for it is a base for their coffee bar. I will have to admit that these minutes are an even bigger PR problem than the decision to sell. The picky way they crafted the resolved to mention only the campus ministry and not the congregation as a whole is just plain pathetic. I will admit that I had a few misgivings about the terrible treatment of the BoD and DP of MNS in the blogosphere but not after reading the actual minutes. Shame. Shame. Shame.

First you can have the organ and any ohter furnishings that may be helpful, then that "resolved" is taken out? How embarrasing and how very sad to think that called and ordained LCMS clergymen willingly participated in this betrayal.
Holy crap. There's a position in the OHM called church planter to which a district can extend a Divine Call?
Am I back in WELS, or did I misread that.
Anyone care to take a stab at how much a prototype of a "ReDO Fitness" will run? Anyone care to open the bidding $3.5 million?
"Whereas, the Minnesota South District has found it necessary to sell its campus property,"
What is the necessity?
"What is the necessity?"
It seems that ULC was an incubator for a certain orientation of lutherans.
"Church Planting: ReDo Fitness unquiquely combines physical fitness and faith fitness in a Christian setting where the community is the mission field. Chad Kirchoff, co-founded Snap Fitness. Is now a licensed Deacon and pastor-in-training with the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, introduced the concept."
And he has filed a trademark for it:
A lutheran YMCA?
