Past Elders

Reading through our church council and voters' assembly archives I found some reports from the Board of Elders dating from the late 1940s to the early 1960s.

Instead of peaceful release (what we call leaving us to join a non-LCMS congregation) the term they used back then was defection.

Instead of self-exclusion the term they used back then was despising the Word and Sacrament.
