Let’s workshop this thing

I’ve started a Wikipedia entry for the Evangelical Lutheran Church of England. Feel free to go in there and edit it extensively: it is currently no more than the stubbiest of stubs.[citation needed]

  1. Citation needed, eh?

    I think you’re just trying to associate the ELCE with the latest music and fashion trends… and after all this high-minded talk about Word and Sacrament, too. Don’t forget to illustrate that Wikipedia page with a photo of your youth pastor, bodypopping.

    Sorry, just couldn’t resist the opportunity to indulge in a spot of Rickrolling

    Dir sir,

    How dare you defame the character of that fine young man, Mr. Astley, by implying falsely his association with such dreadful and most un-English cults like those foreigners, the Lutherians. (Their profane use of the glorious Tudor rose in their pernicious propaganda is truly horrific.) I’ll have you know that Mr. Astley is without a doubt a much better dancer than any Lutherian could ever be. Shame on you!

    No Wikipaedia article on any Lutheran sect is fully valid and complete without six paragraphs of excruciating detail on either (a) whether it holds to quia or the other position, or (b) the number, composition, powers and procedures of its synodical committees, or (c) some arcane controversy that split its membership on theological and ethnic lines in 1973.

    So – back to the cyber-quill, JH!

    By the way, “Majesty – Workshop His or Her Majesty” is the unofficial anthem of the Uniting Church of Australia.

  6. Paul Landgraf says:

    The number of congregations seems a bit high, but other than that, it’s a good start. Good idea!

  7. John H says:

    Well, I said “congregations and missions” because it was based just on “counting the blobs” on the ELCE directory map. I couldn’t remember how many are congregations (12? 13?) and how many are missions.
