A Universalist Lutheran jurisdiction

Table of Content

Add to the collection of universalist-theology jurisdictions the General Lutherans.

They're not big (who is?) but claim ministers and ministries in several countries; that's worth noting. Their polity is congregationalist and they "subcontract" their institutional endorsements through the The Coalition of Spirit-filled Churches, which is one of the go-to endorsers.  Nothing so strange there. They are social conservatives, and even more distinctively, a poor church: it has "no salaried employees, bank accounts, or cash assets." That's different, and should temper your expectations. But they do have a free-of-charge training program and a PDF magazine.

Their dean and General Minister, James Clifton, has been in the para-Universalist-sphere for years, so I don't thinking I'm getting his theology wrong.

I hesitated to post the link, but not because of their traditionalist morality towards (or should I say, against) LGBT people; after all, I take a big tent approach to Universalism. But because when you browse there, you will be audio attacked with Judy Collins singing "Amazing Grace." Be warned.
