"It would be a blessing" if certain actions taken by voting members of the Churchwide Assembly of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) were not implemented, said the president of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS), the Rev. Gerald B. Kieschnick.
The problem with Kieschnick's appeal is that it comes much to late. The ELCA has been hijacked by church leaders, including some of the very bishops to whom he makes his appeal. They have fought for over 20 years to achieve this result. They are not about to overturn it now.
