LMCC 2015 Meeting Summary
The Lutheran-Moravian Coordinating Committee met July 27-29 at the Laurel Ridge Moravian Camp and Retreat Center in Laurel Springs, North Carolina, under the gracious hospitality of the Southern Province. The Committee’s key accomplishments were:
- Launching a Facebook page and blog, lutheranmoravian.wordpress.com
- Identifying several stories of shared ministries to lift up (on the blog and elsewhere) as examples and encouragement to our churches.
- Engaging in a strategic planning process based on the intersection of the committee’s constituencies and responsibilities.
- Developing a initial model for formation and missional engagement between Lutheran and Moravian rostered and lay leaders in places where our churches are strongly present, starting with a convening in 2016 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania that will be held in conjunction with the Committee’s annual meeting.
- Lifting up the 15th anniversary of our full communion partnership and looking toward the future to discern where the next 15 years might lead us together as we follow the Shepherd.
