From the Christian Post:
The head of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) is asking for members of the nation’s largest Lutheran body
to devote more time to prayer and the study of Scripture over the 50 days leading up to its 2009 assembly.
The ELCA Churchwide Assembly, which convenes every two years, is the denomination’s highest legislative authority and is scheduled to meet in Minneapolis starting Aug. 17.
This year’s gathering will be particularly significant as the denomination is expected to adopt its first statement on human sexuality based on proposals
that conservative Lutherans have rejected
as ones that would liberalize the denomination’s stance on homosexuality…
