Dear Friends:

An important and very welcome feature of church life in the North American Lutheran Church (NALC) is 
congregational ratification of major decisions.
This gives congregations a strong voice in the decisions of 
our church body. It also gives us the responsibility to give or withhold our approval (ratification) of these
 major decisions in an informed manner. “Major decisions” include: A. Constitutional Amendments; B. 
Teaching Statements; C. Partnership agreements with other church bodies.

In August, the NALC’s 2012 Annual Convocation adopted a resolution that the NALC apply to become a full member church
 body of the Lutheran World Federation (LWF). This is one of those major decisions requiring congregational ratification
 before it moves forward. Therefore, the application for LWF membership will not be submitted unless and until the
 congregations give their approval to it. Our congregation will hold its vote on the matter at our annual meeting
 on January 27, 2013.

The Lutheran World Federation is “a global communion of Christian churches in the Lutheran tradition. Founded in 1947
 in Lund , Sweden , the LWF now has 145 member churches in 79 countries all over the world representing over 70 million
 Christians.” It has an extensive and highly informative website, which you can find at www.lutheranworld.org. There are
 many links on the home page, each one providing a wealth of information on the LWF’s mission and activities.

I highly encourage all of our members to become as informed as possible, as we consider this important
 decision for our
church body!

Sincerely in Christ,
 Pastor Carl L.M. Rasmussen
