Here. I wonder if LutheranCORE will make some effort to mesh with Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC), formed about nine years ago by congregations concerned about what they saw as the dilution of the authority of Scripture following the passage, ten years ago, of Called to Common Mission in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA)?

See here.

[UPDATE: Bishop Mark Hanson of the ELCA has issued a video statement on the state of the ELCA here.]

If the 20th Century was the era of Lutheran consolidation and unity, perhaps the 21st Century will be our era of fracture and discord.

Or theological and confessional renewal. If that's the case, then this time of chaos and consternation will turn out to be the birth pangs of a renewed Lutheran witness to the Gospel.
