As Garrison Keillor frequently notes, “It’s been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon.”

Can’t report on the latest gossip from LCMC because the 91 members of the “Friends of LCMC” Google group apparently grew tired of my comments about their comments since they have now made their little group private, preventing outsiders like me from checking in from time to time to see what’s going on.  Don’t think they’d accept me for membership. 

Nothing out of the Lutheran Core camp since their March 17th release of their March newsletter.  I already commented about the overall negative tone of that missive that was their list of things they dislike about the ELCA.

From the ELCA comes fairly routine news; the most recent press releases pertain to a) ecumenical advocacy days, b) HIV religious summit, c) Jerusalem Lutheran hospital, d) other middle east matters, and e) flooding of the Red River along the Minnesota – North Dakota border.

I don’t think I’ll be so bold as to suggest a return to normalcy and away from contentiousness within the ELCA, but that’s been the case this week.
