The Bible is the Word of God in that it contains the Word of God. Some of the noncanonical Jewish and early Christian writings are also part of my personal canon.
Saved by grace!
Looking for discussions with fellow Lutherans.

Thanks so much for the clarification and for alerting me to this misunderstanding on my part!
Blessings and peace to you,
Thanks a bunch for commenting, Lynn. I confess to being more familiar with the Episcopal than the Lutheran side of things, so I appreciate the clarification. It was my understanding that the "call to common mission" approved by ELCA in 1999 enabled the two "to share clergy, and fully recognize each other's members, ministries and sacraments." What does fully recognizing each other's sacraments actually mean?
