Ok, I give up....What's the joke with the caption on this?Grumps
WELS fellowship principles were formulated before there were phonographs, so they could really shun then, and could go a whole lifetime without hearing a non-Synodical Conference person sing anything religious if they were pious enough. If carolers came along, they'd have to stuff their ears. However, they'd say listening to a phonograph record is okay since it is not a worship service, or fellowship. Ah, the joys of splitting hairs.I have a niece who sings like that, and she's a few years younger than the girl on the video. She really sticks out at the WELS church they belong to since she's the only one not mumbling, and fumbling the lyrics.
Don't worry, if your conscience doesn't bother you WELS teachers give you the stamp of approval.
Is that really that little girl singing in this video? The voice sounds way too mature.Also, I think they could have lost the little boy in this video..is that supposed to be her boy friend? If so, kind of creepy....I didn't realize as WELS we were not supposed to listen to songs not being sung by fellow WELSians. Do people realize that Silent Night was not written in the WELS, or even by a Lutheran ?Grumps,
Careful grumpy, she is a pre-teen after all. Besides, at 10 she could be married already . . . were this the Middle Ages or a fundamentalist Muslim country. However, perhaps it's one of her brothers:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jackie_Evancho
Grumpy, I am sure that is her brother. And that's OK in the CLC (sic). You must not belong to that sect.One WELS person (not giving away anthing) said the headline was pretty funny.Of course, everyone in WELS can join in if it is the Salvation Army.
Our Fellowship principles deal fist and for most with the Lord's Supper with our practice of closed communinion. Anything more such as singing in a secular choir or leader prayer at a community function would in my opinion fall under the catagory of adiaphora.WELS High Schooler
