Workshop: Moving from Close to Closed-Communion
Pastor Travis Loeslie, Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Morristown, MN, will be leading a workshop entitled Moving from Close to Closed-Communion. Below is a description of the workshop.
This workshop will explore the history of the terminological differences in American Lutheranism, as well as give encouragement to men to remain faithful in the administration of the Holy Sacraments to the Holy Ones. It will offer practical counsel for shifting a congregation from “close” to “closed” communion. We will consider how to defend this practice as well as ensure that the Lord’s blood-bought, holy ones receive His holy body and blood.
