Why is Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, an ELCA seminary, selling their property and buildings? The slow death of the apostate denomination rolls on.
A news release by the school titled "Institutions Agree on Plan for Sale of Hyde Park Property" can be read here. The article did not list the sale price.
This news was a surprise to the ELCA's United Lutheran seminary president:
I found this an interesting side note. The LSTC Seminary website says this:
"ABOUT THE LAND
The Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago recognizes that our school stands on the lands of the Potawatomi, Miami, and Peoria peoples. For thousands of years before their forced removal, this was their traditional homeland, and it continues to hold their ancestral stories and wisdom. We honor and thank the elders of these and other nations, past and present. These lands are still home to many indigenous people, and we are grateful to learn in this place." (see here)
With such a statement I find it telling that the ELCA is not giving the land "back" to the Potawatomi, Miami, and Peoria peoples. And we have yet to learn if the ELCA will keep the money made on the sale the "native American lands."

"The non-binding letter of intent provides that LSTC and McCormick would have a right to lease space in their existing buildings from the University of Chicago for a limited period of time."

As you commented, the Seminary recognized the Potawatomi, Miami, and Peoria peoples whose land they now occupy. Will they share the proceeds or keep it in the ELCA bank? When the synod membership numbers & people attending the school are shrinking, I have a good idea where the sale $$ will be used.
