Check out the post by Mollie over at Augsburg 1530 summarizing last week's Board for Communication Services meeting. Basically, the Board decided to do nothing. Yep, absolutely nothing! So much for that opportunity to right a grave injustice! So much for the Board itself exercising its given authority!
It would appear that the Board swallowed Mr. Strand's latest version of the reasons for canceling Issues, Etc. and firing Mr. Jeff Schwarz and Rev. Todd Wilken (a *called* pastor, by the way. See Pr. Preus' reflections on that.) And now Mr. Tom Kuchta, Treasurer, is implicated? With Mollie, I find that quite hard to believe. I also know that Mr. Kuchta has been an ardent supporter of Issues, Etc.
The sadness continues, and the real questions - especially "Why?" - still linger in the air, because the Board apparently passed up a great opportunity to come clean for folks in the LCMS and beyond. Lord, have mercy!
