The ELCA survivors who have gathered to form a new church consider themselves to be Confessional, Missional, and Doxological. They disagree among themselves about ecclesiology which they consider to be adiaphora (something neither commanded nor forbidden). Some favor the bishop system while others say that bishops aren't necessary, that Jesus is the only bishop necessary. (Doesn't this remind you of the English Dissidents in the time of King James I who were so bitterly opposed and persecuted by Archbishop Laud?)
There are, of course, other Lutherans on the scene but these Golden Valley Lutherans will not join them. The LCMC (Lutheran Christians in Mission for Christ) are not to be considered as 'LC-MS Lite.' The members of the LCMC will ordain women as the ELCA has done for years and will not practice what is known as Closed Communon ('it's the Lord's Supper, not the Lutheran's Supper.')
There is a sign of co-operation between the Canadian branches of the two traditions. The Canadians (CALC) have turned to the Canadian branch of the LC-MS which operates a seminary in Edmonton. The idea is that the LC-MS will take all students for enrollment, male or female. The Missouri Synod says that it will do so without theological compromise and the CALC says that they won't compromise any of their principles either. In other words, the LC-MS will educate the women but won't ordain them while the CALC will ordain their students into the ministry after they have completed their course of study in the Missouri Synod affiliated Canadian seminary.
