News from the Lutherans

26 07 2010

Two items of note in the newsfeed this morning…

Via The New York Times…

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America welcomes 7 openly gay pastors.

Also, via Ekklesia, the Lutheran World Federation chooses as President a Palestinian bishop.

The ELCA has a full-communion agreement with The Episcopal Church, which basically means we can share priests/pastors and celebrate Eucharist together. The Anglican Communion and the Lutheran World Federation also have very close relationships.
