    Perhaps call-list best practice could include giving initial consideration to eligible Candidate and Non-Candidate Status Pastors who, in some cases, have hoped, waited, and prayed for years just to be included on a Call list let alone receive another Call. Activating Inactive Status pastors would preclude the need to compile yet another Call list when an Active Status Pastor accepts a Call to a new congregation. In this way the Synod can re-activate these faithful witnesses, show mercy to these pastors and their families, and include them in our Synod’s life together.

    Isn’t it *more* important that we have God’s Word on our side?

    By the way, what is “the view of all history”?
