Conventional Wisdom

"We're not done yet, Brett. ELCA will get a whole lot smaller after this convention."




The LCMC will meet in Des Moines starting on October 2, the day we return from the Moline High Reunion. We turn south at Des Moines, so we will stop at their gathering for a short time.

The parallel group, the NALC (the bishops' synod) will meet in Columbus in July.

WELS is meeting next week, to approve the NNIV and to re-elect Mark and Avoid Jeske as the de facto Synod President.

ELCA will meet August 15th.

  • Bethel in Noblesville, IN, passed their first vote to leave ELCA by an 82% margin. This congregation has about 1300 members.
  • Gethsemane Lutheran Church, Ft. Wayne, IN, 1st vote to leave ELCA, today.
  • St. John's Lutheran Church, Gollad, TX, 1st vote to leave ELCA, today.
  • St. Jacob Lutheran Church, Chapin, SC, second vote, already decided to join NALC (Vote Passed!)
  • Going, going, gone.
