Congregations dissenting from the ELCA’s embrace of homosexuality now have a bishop and have formed a new Lutheran denomination: The North American Lutheran Church (NALC). It has 250 congregations and some 100,000 members. Check out their website, which details the NALC’s beliefs, government, and mission:
My impression is that the NALC will still ordain women and be ecumenical in relation to other churches–the website specifically says it will co-operate with the new Anglican church, which the NALC seems to be emulating–while being more conservative than the ELCA on moral, Biblical, and theological issues.
