Newman reports the CTX leaders are committed to the confession of the LCMS. Their recent vote is about governance, not leaving.
Can Synod have national control of Concordias when times are good and local control when Concordias struggle to avoid “ascending liability?” You can’t have it both ways.
In the Nov. 11 statement, Synod leaders questioned the “standing” of CTX BOR to vote for improved local governance. The truth is we all have standing.
Earlier this year, Concordia Texas asked LCMS to discuss a change to a local governance model. After months of delay, they implemented their plan.
