July 12 - The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America announced:
In a move toward advancing sustainable theological education the Church Council of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) approved on July 11 a merger between Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, Berkeley, Calif., and California Lutheran University, Thousand Oaks, Calif. The Church Council serves as the ELCA board of directors.

Twin Cities Word Alone facebook page wrote of the news saying, "ELCA Church Council approves another seminary and university merger. The word is third is on its way. Enrollment overall is down. Why do less students want to go to ELCA seminaries?" (see here)
The ELCA is a failing denomination that has built its house on the sand. The rock of Christ Jesus and God's Word have been abandoned by the ELCA. In Matthew 7:26-27, Jesus said, "Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.”
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
1 Thessalonians 5:21
