So I get the Lutheran CORE newsletter. Why? Because I want to see what is going on the the world of Lutheranism. One things surprises me as I look at the difference between the CORE’s child, the North American Lutheran Church (NALC) and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. CORE’s newsletter has four big articles about the ELCA.
- Gemechis Buba to be NALC Missions Director.
Dr. Buba is first prominent leader from ELCA national office to join NALC.
- “Spread the word, start the conversation” by Pastor Mark Chavez.
Many congregations have not discussed 2009 ELCA assembly actions.
- Proposed social statement on genetics plays role in congregations’ votes to leave ELCA.
- ELCA cuts budget, cuts churchwide structure.
Churchwide organization experiences dramatic decline in support from congregations.
Now, coming out of ELCA Churchwide…nadda on CORE or the NALC. Now, I have to ask, over the course of a month, is news so slow in CORE and the NALC, that they have nothing better to do than to run stories about the ELCA? You left…get over it, deal with it, whatever.
