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.
