This is interesting to me because firstly they openly claim that the LCMC promotes separation from the ELCA. What are the facts that support this allegation? The fact of the matter is that this congregation, which the synod took action against, is dual-affiliated with the ELCA and LCMC. The LCMC is fine with the dual-affiliation, yet the ELCA is not. Who here is promoting separation from whom?
Secondly, the reason this congregation's pastor is a LCMC-rostered pastor is because last month the Southeastern Iowa Synod bishop, Michael Burk, removed this pastor from the ELCA clergy roster. (see here)
