Latvian Lutheran Church Abroad Archbishop Lauma Zusevica

In May Archbishop Lauma Zusevica from Milawaukee, USA visited the Lutheran Church in Ireland: The Latvian Church in Ireland which we host for their services suffered a split at Palm Sunday: the smaller part belongs now to the Latvian Lutheran Church (www.lelb.lv/en), the majority is now part of the Latvian Lutheran Church Abroad (www.lelbal.org). It was a deep conversation about conservativism and the joy of openness in church. Shortly after her visit in Dublin the Latvian Lutheran Church decided not to ordain female Pastors any more which makes me speechless.

The Church council of my church has to discuss who will be our Latvian Partner in future which is absolutely clear in my eyes. Blessings for Lauma Zusevica!
