We're not as lively as the Episcopal board, for example.


It did kind of quiet down after the ELCA CWA in 2009. I don't think we want to start that again just to get a conversation going.


We could swap ideas for something sweet to go with fellowship coffee. Coffee, of course, being our third sacrament. :)

How about this ...


With The New Triumphal Protestant Ethos ... and Rome gradually UN-Doing Vaican II ...


Where does all of that leave us "Lutherans" ... ???


It is Time for us just to *toss*it*in* and ... either Go Home To Rome ... or join the Swarm of Protest Ants ... ???

Why would we have to do either?

OK, I understand the part about Rome undoing Vatican II, but what is the "New Triumphal Protestant Ethos"?  And as Alwaysinterested asked, why would this necessitate some sort of choice for Lutherans?

We DON'T have to do either one ... necessarily ...


But since "Rome" is increasingly turning a Cold Shouder to US ... and in North America the New Church Model is a tasteless Shade-of-Gray General Protest Ant-ism ...


It does seem like a specifically "Lutheran" Identity is now in Question ...


If "Rome" is going to simply ignore us ... and MANY of our immediate Neigbors are jumping-Ship for a Yeah-Rah-Entertainment Mega-Barn Sunday-Fun Experience ... What ABOUT us ... ???

I think we can remain an alternative to both.


I know any number of RC folks who are very uncomfortable with the increasing conservatism of "Rome." There are also many folks who don't buy into the "happy, slappy, follow our rules and you will achieve earthly success" non-denominational Protestantism.

I had dearly, dearly, dearly hoped and prayed that The Spirit and The Church would call and elect John XXIV ... but we got Benedict XVI ...
