Tossed to and fro

The ELCA, a merger of 3 Lutheran bodies in the late 20th c., is the largest of the Lutheran bodies in the United States. This body is considered to be what is called a "mainline protestant" body so that the issues it faces are similar to issues faced by other mainline protestants. At the national assembly this August they will be considering changing what it means to be an ELCA clergy. For an article on this issue and the response of three ELCA theologians click here

Conservative protestant Christianity has grown, in part, as a reaction to liberal changes in "mainline protestantism." However, traditional Christianity is being thrown out with the bathwater. Here is an apt commentary on the traditional Church and her detractors called, "Parable of the Sea". Click here
