Ivy Gauvin is an ELCA pastor at St. Timothy Lutheran Church in Bemus Point, New York. She writes that students were penalized if they used gendered names for God at her ELCA seminary.
"Blessed be the God and [Parent] of our Lord Jesus Christ..."
That is what an Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) seminary wrote when announcing the death of two people connected with the seminary. They replaced "Father" with "Parent."
Jesus called God "Father." Why is this ELCA seminary not content using the same name for God that the Lord Jesus Christ did?
