At a recent meeting in Chicago, ELCA unit
leaders were asked what message they took with them from the recently
concluded synod assemblies (see "Synod assemblies’ actions are wide-ranging").
I attended eight such gatherings in the Midwest, looking for feedback on the magazine. Yes, the ears got burned a few times, but people did note positive changes in overall content.
However, three comments came up most often about canceled subscriptions to The Lutheran: the congregation dropped its subscription plan to cut costs; some members are concerned over a single topic they think has been covered unfairly; members don’t care what’s going on elsewhere.
