M.Z. Hemingway Responds To Kieschnick.

Mollie Ziegler Hemingway responded to President Kieschnick’s assertion that his beloved synod is one big happy unified family by sending the following note:

Dear President Kieschnick,

In your letter to the editor of the Wall Street Journal, you wrote that I paint a “false and misleading picture” of the LCMS “as a deeplydivided church.”
Respectfully, I take issue with what you wrote.
The first article in the January 2008 edition of Board Briefs talksabout the plan to restore harmony coming out of Resolution 4-01A ofthe 2007 convention. The article describes how members of the BOD andCOP “met in small groups to identify those issues in the Synod thoughtto be causing the greatest discord.”

While the entire list of 20 issues proves my point, I might directyour attention to this item listed as one of the major problems in ourchurch body:
“Failure to recognize the severity of the division in our Synod.”

In Christ,
Mollie Ziegler Hemingway
P.S. The Board Brief is available here:

Hmm, isn’t it interesting that she didn’t take her over a week to craft a response? Since President Kieschnick thinks that unity is based on not gathering around one confession but rather agreement in convention and approved resolutions voted on by delegates, I’d say she knocked this one out of the park.

The little Harry Caray voice in the back of my noggin is screaming “Mollie wins! Mollie wins!”
