I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4

More on Tim Glende Helping To Close His Savoy, Illinois WELS Mission

Sherrie Rardin Nate, I am not saying the church should or should not have sold their building. The only thing I will say on that they were forced into it and if you want to know more privately, please message me. What I am saying is that you have a church, an established church that has existed for over 30 years, that had long-time (some lifelong) WELS members in it that asked over and over the course of three years (before they were at risk of losing their building) for help in training, outreach and other growth measures, and received nothing back, not even responses most of the time. I can tell you my personal feelings on that but won't post them here as it would be hard to be construed constructive. 

I personally saw some of the letters drafted requesting some of this help. When a pastor, who has been the head of committee on relief, a circuit pastor AND a one-time pastor of this congregation goes to leadership for answers and they tell him to mind his own business, something is not on the up and up. 

When the DP, who has also served this congregation and was, in fact, its starting pastor, says he does not understand it and has been told it is not his district now, there's a problem.


GJ - Glende was the primary cause in bankrupting the Savoy parish, because he put them into debt for a new building that he was not around to leave. No, he took off for St. Peter in Freedom. 

But he wanted Savoy closed down as a bad memory of his pastoral bullying and ineptness.
