I know that it is important who gets elected to office in our Synod. My question is, let’s say that all the people we want to get elected to office (President & Vice-Presidents) actually got elected. So what? What’s that going to change in the long run? Is that going to mean that all the churches practicing open communion are now going to be reprimanded? Will it mean that all the churches that use non-traditional worship practices will have pressure put on them to change their practices? Does that mean that the lay-ministry program will be eliminated in all Districts, and that no more lay preachers will be allowed in our churches? I know I’m being cynical, but it’s really hard not to be. Maybe someone with a little more optimism can comment intelligently on why it really matters who gets elected in our “Synod”.
