Episode 40: The Lutherpalian Episode

The Intersection Between the ELCA and the Episcopal Church

At a time when denominations may be wary of each other and even slight variations in approaches or beliefs can divide members, it is possible to come together in joint ministry.  Reverend Bill Peterson is an example of a successful venture between the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America and the Episcopal Church.  The new term for this blended bunch: “Lutherpalians.”

Pastor Bill had to navigate when to kneel, who leads the congregation and how to maintain unique identities.  However he has found a shared emphasis on liturgical and sacramental worship and a wonderful community dedicated to the proclamation of the Gospel.

In this interview Pastor Bill shares his highs, his challenges and some funny moments.  We hope you enjoy this episode of the 2 Bald Pastors.
