WordAlone offers 'alternative'

The WordAlone Network gathered Nov. 9-11 at St. Andrew Lutheran Church, Mahtomedi, Minn., to celebrate Martin Luther's birthday and hear about a new association to be formed, Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ.

WordAlone's membership includes 121 congregations and 4,000 individuals who won't comply with the historic episcopate requirements of Called to Common Mission, the ELCA's full communion agreement with the Episcopal Church (see also, pages 24, 44). CCM was adopted by the ELCA in 1999 and by the Episcopal Church in July 2000.
