Our initial dialogue with NALC representatives has been a rather joyous surprise. Bishop Bradosky and the men who joined him in our time together have been profoundly molded by the cross and years of suffering as their former church body slipped further and further from the Word of God. We’ve shared but a small splinter of that cross as we too have been forced to distance ourselves from the ELCA after
years of so much good work and many personal relationships.
The NALC fervently desires to take the Scriptures and the Lutheran confession seriously. These men are creedal Christians who share our own convictions on fundamental issues of life and sexuality. We do have real differences and they will not be easily overcome. But the outcome is the Lord’s. And we wish the NALC every blessing as it moves forward. May God grant us all repentance, forgiveness and a renewed hunger and thirst to be faithful to His revealed and inerrant Word.
