Misery Synod has its problems too

Looking for other things, I came across this story. Apparently there have been rumors that one or both LCMS seminaries are going to be put up for sale! This post from a seminary students' blog has an "official" statement refuting the rumors, signed by everybody and his cousin, including LCMS President Gerald Kieschnick. When it takes NINE people to knock down a rumor you can't help but think of Shakespeare: Me thinks he (they) doth protest too much. Not surprisingly, Missouri is having its own financial problems and the seminaries are part of that equation. There is also a brewing squabble over a proposed churchwide restructuring plan. Looks like a lot of people are getting practice rearranging the Titanic's deck chairs.
