LCC releases supplement to 2017 Convention Workbook

September 15, 2017 One Comment

CANADA – Lutheran Church–Canada (LCC) has released a supplement to the 2017 Convention Workbook.

The supplement contains additional overtures for Committee 1, including overtures from the Commission on Constitutional Matters and Structure and the Board of Directors proposing amendments to restructure the Synod. It also includes an overture from the Commission on Theology and Church Relations, proposing that LCC declare altar and pulpit fellowship with the Evangelical Lutheran Mission Diocese of Finland (ELMDF).

The supplement also includes an appeal from the voting lay delegates of the Saskatoon Circuit; corrections to the original Convention Workbook, including changes to overtures submitted by the East District Board of Directors; resource documents including the full text of proposed Handbook amendments; and a supplemental report from LCC’s Board of Directors expanding on the earlier report in the original Convention Workbook.

    With respect, it is inaccurate and misleading for the authors of the Convention Supplement to claim that the voters of Faith Lutheran Church “favour restructuring of the Synod on the basis of the Convention Draft of the Act and Bylaws originally devised by the CCMS”. The overture adopted by the voters at Faith Lutheran Church asked that the CCMS Convention Draft be shared with all voting delegates and that the LCC conduct and publish a variance analysis between that restructuring plan and the one being developed by the four member working group.
