No, I think their boss Liz is quite pretty and feminine.
Thrivent is a dawg - and they all have Planned Parenthood fleas.
In the January 2014 Forum Letter, Pastor Richard Johnson has an article about theological education.
It raises some questions that perhaps a wider audience could answer or even Editor Johnson.
Two of the ELCA Seminaries have merged with church related-universities: Southern with Lenoir-
Rhyne and Pacific with California Lutheran University.
Two of the ELCA Seminaries are on the ATS Financial
Watch List (Association of Theological Schools):
This leaves us with the remaining four:
- Luther Seminary at St. Paul, MN
- Trinity Seminary at Columbus, Ohio
- Lutheran Seminary at Gettysburg, PA
- Wartburg Seminary at Dubuque, Iowa
Evidently, Luther Seminary resolved a recent financial crisis. Who makes the decisions on
the vitality of these seminaries based on enrollment, finances, etc.?
|Robin Steinke is the new president of Luther Seminary.|
|Robin, Louise, and the two women leading ELCA colleges|
suggest that ELCA Bishop Liz Eaton is empowering...women.
The female seminary presidents have no spouse of either sex listed,
Does the ELCA as a church body have a master plan for these seminaries to survive?
Are any of these seminaries too small to last another ten years?
|Update: the new president of Wartburg Seminary seems remarkably|
unqualified for the job. Maybe she is the designated closer.

head for the hills!
Pray it not be in winter.
