Episcopal-Lutheran Partnership

In January 2000 the Episcopal Church and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America entered into full communion.  Entering into full communion does not imply a merger of the two Churches.  Rather it means that both Churches recognize fully the ordained orders and sacraments of the other.  In fact, it is possible for an Episcopal parish to call a Lutheran pastor as its rector (clergyperson in charge) or for a Lutheran parish to call an Episcopal priest as its pastor.

Being the pioneering types, Father Frank and Pastor Arnie Perry didn't wait for our two denominations to close the deal on full communion before we began working together.  Since 1998 we have been working together virtually every Sunday night of the academic year.  Since the Lutheran and Episcopal services are so similar to begin with, it wasn't difficult for us to come up with a hybrid "UM Rite" that isn't exactly Episcopalian and isn't exactly Lutheran but looks and feels really familiar to both (and also is familiar to Roman Catholics).

Pastor Perry retired in May 2015.  Until we have a new Lutheran partner (or perhaps several partners), we will continue to use our hybrid Episcopal/Lutheran service.
