Earlier this Fall, Dwight Zscheile, a professor at Luther Seminary authored an article/blog post titled "Will the ELCA be around in 30 years?" That article features some research the reveals the dramatic decline of the ELCA projected from 2017 to 2050.
In this episode of the Everyday Spirituality Show we sit down, via a telephone, with Dwight and ask him to unpack this article in greater depth.
Dwight Zscheile is vice president of innovation and associate professor of congregational mission and leadership at Luther Seminary.
