Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:10-13 KJV. Where we go one, we go all.

More Exits from ELCA

More info from Pastor Barnhart: Via George Erdner, ALPB

5. IMMANUEL LUTHERAN CHURCH, ROCKWELL, NC passed first vote to leave the ELCA, 126-5.

6. TRINITY LUTHERAN CHURCH, CARRINGTON, ND passed second vote to leave the ELCA, 161-16.

7. ST. JOHN LUTHERAN CHURCH, WESTBORO, MO passed second vote to leave the ELCA and voted to join the NALC and LCMC 90-2.

8. ST. JOHN LUTHERAN CHURCH, DANFORTH, IL passed second vote to leave the ELCA, 80-17 and voted to join NALC 78-6.

9. ST. ANDREW BY THE SEA LUTHERAN CHURCH, ATLANTIC CITY, NJ passed second vote to leave the ELCA and join the NALC by 98%.

10. ST. PAUL LUTHERAN CHURCH, WATERTOWN, WI passed second vote to leave the ELCA and join NALC.

11. ST. PAUL LUTHERAN CHURCH, BRENHAM, TX failed to pass first vote to leave the ELCA, with only 25% voting in favor of leaving.

That brings the totals (as I have them) up to:

Leaving = 88
Left ELCA = 508
Total = 596

New starts = 203

To all of those who keep predicting over and over and over and over that the exodus from the ELCA won't keep going much longer, do any of you care to go out on a limb and predict when the leaving is going to stop, or at least slow down?
