1957 Edmund Reim Resignation

After the Synod's rejection of the 1957 Floor Committee No. 2 (Church Union), Professor and President of Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary Edmund Reim was compelled to discontinue his fellowship with the WELS.

He said, "I take this step, not in anger, but in deepest sorrow, and because I am constrained by the Word of God."

Here is his letter of resignation.
