Quote from: Bergs on May 14, 2012, 10:15:44 PMAre the Lutheran Brethren considered more "Haugean" than other Lutheran groups. My wife's family is real big on the Lutheran Brethren and I know that family (all Norwegian immigrants from the Nordfjord area) was wooed into the Lutheran Brethren by some itinerant pastors in about 1920.Brian J.

Quote from: grabau on May 17, 2012, 10:22:57 AMOur pastor announced on the first meeting of confirmation class that anyone attending dances would not be confirmed. (United Church background). In spite of pietist values we knew that men of the church enjoyed a beer or two at a rural tavern not at one of the bars on village main street. We were visited by evangelists of LEM who stressed a kind of decision theology. But church usages, vestments, sung collects etc. prevailed. grabau
