I am reflecting on other letters I have seen here on the subject of clergy surpluses. There are opportunities for pastors at university campuses, and I know that we could have more mission churches in the northern suburb area of Dallas. If the bureaucracies in the LCMS and other denominations would get out of the way, and find money for missions, there would be enough for the workers of the harvest. I think at the very least, the number of colloquies and SMP recipients should be cut down.
Ted,I think you are correct across the board. +HRC
