This weekend the ELCA's Metro D.C. Synod posted a version of the Lord's Prayer on Facebook that calls God "Father and Mother of us all." (see the synod post below)
And from the west coast of the United States we have this account of ELCA pastor Staci Boorn, “When she had been at Ebenezer Lutheran less than a year, Pastor Boorn, with the parents’ permission, baptized a child ‘in the name of God who is our Mother and our Father and in the name of Jesus, who is the child of God.’” (see here)
Here we have two more examples of the ELCA teaching against the witness of Scripture by calling God a female. (See more by clicking and scrolling down the page here and here) In Matthew 6:9, Jesus instructs us to call God "Father."
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
