The question has been asked of me what the status of our relationship with the United Methodist Church is currently. A reminder these agreements are made on the churchwide, not synodical, level. Thank you Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton for this letter.
“Many of you may be pondering the good Lutheran question: What does this mean? For the UMC? For our full communion partnership? It is simply too soon to have clarity on those questions. I assure you that there are leaders, both ELCA and UMC, who are carefully and faithfully tending to these questions.” #NTNL #ELCA #InMissionTogether
