Lutheran group moves toward new denomination
A Lutheran renewal group is moving toward the creation of a new church body for congregations that leave the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

The announcement comes almost three months after the ELCA voted to allow individuals in same-gender, committed relationships to serve in the clergy.
