Pr. Peters tells us that Thrivent is no longer “for Lutherans.” They voted in overwhelming majority to ditch the Lutheran distinction (which wasn’t much to begin with, let’s be honest) and now they’re what? Just another financial services company.
If I didn’t just turn 40 I’d be ditching my life insurance policies too. As it is, I’m going shopping for better deals. No reason for loyalty any more. Oh, and good thing they have been weaning Lutheran churches off the grants and matching gifts, since those will completely vanish in months, I suspect.
