Thank you for bringing the posting of the Program Host to our attention. The position was posted in error. Please accept our apologies for the error.According to this, are we to believe that the LCMS HR folks were unaware of the job posting until after it was on the Internet for the world to see? How could they *not* know of the posting's existence? After all, it does take some time, effort, and forethought to post something on the Internet (as I am doing right now).
And this is an "error"? I'll say it's an error! The non-reasons for firing Rev. Todd Wilken - programmatic and business, remember - would seem to be irrelevant now. That is, now that a new program is up and running, one more in line with the changing direction of the LCMS, it must be okay to spend that money which they said they didn't have to pay for a host position after all. The error would seem to be this: they've pretty much admitted that the money wasn't the reason for canceling Issues, Etc. But we knew that already, didn't we?
