Memo to the ELCA

Good morning, ELCA. Today's question is simple: What "business" are we in?

The faith formation business? Or faith preservation?

Changing the world through living out justice and global connection and interfaith dialogue?

Certainly not, to paraphrase Brian McLaren, warehousing souls until they can be shipped to their final destination?

Preserving the "Lutheran" way of doing church?

Making disciples?

Hint: Look at where your people's energy, creativity and time are spent.

What business should we be in?
