Lutheran Pietists were never keen on the Means of Grace. They considered their precious cell groups the Real Church and their Instruments of Grace. That attitude continues to this day. When I mentioned this to a Missouri lady, the facts angered her - against me. Later, when she brought up the Sacrament of Holy Baptism to her group, which was nominally Lutheran, the leader bristled and wanted none of it. The same lady came back to me and said, "You were right."
