A change for the worse

I was terribly disappointed at what appeared (by Synod convention resolution) in the January Witness. I believe this resolution does a great disserve to the deceased workers of Synod, as well as their families. To allow only two lines for their “In Memoriam” is a shame.

Why can’t we as a Synod still honor and thank God for our synodical workers . . . with the kind of information that formerly was printed in the “In Memoriam” section? Does it take another synodical resolution to do this? I realize Synod wants to restructure, streamline and update, but must it be at the cost of honoring our deceased, loyal workers?
