Northwestern Minnesota Synod Bishop Larry Wohlrabe made a comment for the story that couldn’t be included in the story because of deadline constraints. Here is his comment: “Hawley Lutheran Church is a strong, active congregation. We would hate to lose them from our fellowship in the ELCA. I look forward to the consultation I’ll be having with them, which is a required part of the disaffiliation process. This will be an opportunity for me to hear their concerns and urge them to remain in the ELCA.”

    Hilarious. But quite forgivable.
