Talk:Lutheran Church in Malaysia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


There are a lot of references to the LCMS; why is the LCMS being discussed here? Wouldn't it be more accurate/appropriate to talk about this church's external relations in regards to an international Lutheran body rather than a North American one? Further, some aspects described in the article (such as acceptance of women's ordination) seem incorrect if indeed this church is in full communion with the LCMS. More thorough research needs to be conducted in addition to cleaning up the writing and clarifying the relationship of this church to other Lutheran bodies. jackturner3 15:25, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

I don't think the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod has exclusive rights to the LCMS abbreviation :). This is an article for the Lutheran Church in Malaysia and Singapore which also uses the abbreviation LCMS. -- Bob K 19:20, 16 April 2007 (UTC)~
The references need access dates if you ever get around to it. Aaron Bowen 11:59, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
Sure thing. I'll have a go right now. -- Bob K 20:10, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

Name & structural changes[edit]

In the 31st Biennial Convention of the LCMS held in 2011, some significant changes to the structure of the Church were approved. Among the changes are:

  • The change of name from the Lutheran Church in Malaysia & Singapore (LCMS) to Lutheran Church in Malaysia (LCM)
  • The change of the term ‘Convention’ to ‘General Assembly.’
  • To give voting rights to all fulltime pastors, either ordained or otherwise.
  • To provide clearer definition to the role and status of the Districts and the Deans.
  • To provide the option of having a Moderator in future General Assemblies.

As such, an update of the article shall be made once I get the necessary references. - Bob K | Talk 10:11, 10 April 2012 (UTC)
