  1. Confessional Lutherans & Anglicans Draw Closer Together (Dec. 23, 2016)

The dialogue between the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA), the Lutheran Church-Canada (LCC), and the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) began in 2010. Meetings generally take place in the United States. The LCC reports that “Over the years, this dialogue has taken on quite a number of topics to see how close theologically LCC and LCMS are to ACNA, and what things still separate us. These discussions are quite frank and honest, but always uplifting as the desire of every participant is to seek theological truth from Holy Scripture.”

In 2016, LCC, LCMS, and ACNA published a document entitled “On Closer Acquaintance” which outlines how the early years of the dialogue progressed. Participants are now endeavouring to produce a new document on how things have transpired since. The next meeting of this dialogue will take place in May 2023 in Fort Worth, Texas.
