I've heard about Seminex but we were ALC at the time so was not even aware of it then. It sounds like those who got together to form the ELCA all deserved each other.
Good for the LCMS again.
It was strange. I grew up in a small German town with the ALC and there was a LCMS church in a neighboring town but there was always a prejudice against the LCMS. I never knew what it was but it was there. I believe it is still there and that is why those at the ELCA church will not leave and go to the neighboring LCMS.
The members of the ELCA congregation do not know the blessings that are waiting for them.
There is some prejudice the other way, too. Mainly because of things like abortion and homosexuality even though there may be some very conservative churches. But I would also fault the some LCMS churches, too; I've heard of a couple living together unmarried but it doesn't get confronted. Usually something public like that should warrant excommunication.
