Thanks to Oliver Young and another loyal BJS reader for pointing this article out! We appreciate people pointing out items that may be of interest to our readers.
Continuing with our cooperating in externals discussion, this came out yesterday across the AP wire: “Lutheran split over gays and the Bible shakes up multibillion-dollar social service network.” Both are the same article, but this shows it’s got (inter)national distribution.
The Rev. Donald McCoid, an ecumenical officer for the Chicago-based Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, said, “we are deeply concerned about the ministries of care that may be challenged by the recent action of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.”
So it’s the LCMS that has made cooperating in externals difficult?
