Re: [Slovak-World] Woman Preacher
- There are two denominations of Lutherans; one, the Missouri Synod and the
other being Lutheran. The Missouri synod is quite strict, does not allow
non-members to receive Holy Communion at their services, and differs in other ways
from Lutherans, those of which i do not recall at the moment. The reason I
became aware of this is because we have a Lutheran Church, the Missouri Synod
denomination, around the corner I wonder to which branch of Lutheran the
minister belongs. Possibly the more strict branch.
