The publishing arm of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is ending its consumer-oriented book sales and will focus instead on supplying materials for congregations and textbooks for higher education, it was announced last month.
When Lutherans recently celebrated 50 years of ordaining women as pastors in Sweden, they invited Katharine Jefferts Schori, the first woman presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church, to speak at festive events in Uppsala and Stockholm.
Two Reformed churches with shared roots in Dutch Calvinism have merged their publications divisions to streamline operations. The Christian Reformed Church, based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and the Reformed Church in America, based in New York City, will make the CRC’s Faith Alive Christian Resources division the primary publishing arm for both churches.
