Good morning Gentleman,
I am happy to report that both Congregations in our Parish vote 100% to leave the ELCA!! First Dongola vote 28-0 and St. John's 17-0 (no uncast, blanks, or damaged ballots).
Hopefully with unanimity here we won't be a good target but I think the ELCA is going to start its cowardly tactics. Higgins Road sent out a memo to Synod Bishops from Secretary Swarting dated Jan. 19th. It deals with Dual-Rostering of Clergy and Congregations. You can see the heavy handedness and bullying coming through.
I will continue to monitor your Blog and pray for all Lutherans who continue to Stand the Authority of the Bible.
By the way our letters to the Bishop and Voting Members are very similar to yours, hope you don't mind.
