Speaking of Synod and Districts...

It's all over the web today: the MN South District BOD has voted to sell the University Lutheran Chapel's building, probably to a real estate developer, for no less than $3.2 million. Read more about it here. The congregation and pastor don't want to lose their building. Wouldn't even the Fugger bankers give the congregation and pastor until the end of the year to raise a competitive bid? Doesn't that seem like the minimum of human decency?

Check out the link above and let the district office know that you are willing to send in a donation. Ask them to give the congregation time to raise the funds.

UPDATE: I tried to call Pres. Seitz (952-223-2150) - his voice mail says he will be out of the office until Sept. 28th. Go figure.

  1. The donate page at the website is embarassingly simple to use. It lets us donate to the capital and building fund to help ULC try to buy the chapel, and if that cannot happen, then the donations will be used to help the congregation relocate. There are also bulletin inserts at the website that can be used to inform congregants of the situation and how they can help.
