The ELCA recommendations will be presented to the denomination's Churchwide Assembly later this year. We must pray and hope that this denomination will return to the courage and conviction of Martin Luther, who lashed his conscience to the Word of God, and to the Word of God alone.

For more information about the ELCA reports, read the ELCA Church Council's Report and the Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod's Pastoral Letter to the ELCA.
