Informal discussions between WELS, ELS, and LCMS: A report

For the past four years, representatives from our synod and from the Evangelical Lutheran Synod have been meeting for informal discussions with counterparts from the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. At the most recent meeting, held December 1-3, participants unanimously adopted a document that reports on the results of the meetings that have taken place. The report also looks ahead to the future and outlines some of the areas that still need to be addressed.

As you will read in the report, those involved in the meetings have agreed that God has blessed these meetings and that there have been real benefits and blessings as a result of the discussions. Please pray that God would continue to bless these efforts, to his glory.

Serving in Christ,
President Mark Schroeder
