10-2:30; complementary lunch
Are you interested in learning more about Moravians and in finding ways to deepen our relations with them in our own synod and congregations? Then come to a time of worship and discussion on Tuesday, May 15!
The ELCA has been in a “full communion” relation with the Moravian churches of the Northern and Southern provinces since 1999. This mutual recognition allows not only for sharing the sacraments and common mission but also for exchange of pastors. See: http://www.elca.org/Faith/Ecumenical-and-Inter-Religious-Relations/Full-Communion/History#moravian.
The invitation comes from the Lutheran-Moravian Coordinating Committee, charged with helping these church bodies live more fully into their full communion relationship. This year the annual meeting of the Committee is in Madison.
Gathering with members of the Committee will begin at 10:00, with celebration of Holy Communion at 10:30, followed by times of discussion of “where we are and where we can go” until about 2:30, including lunch. All those interested, both pastors and lay people, are welcome!
This is an opportunity to explore what ways forward together our two traditions can find in this place.
