The Other Lutherans

St. John's Lutheran - 216 Jewett Avenue - Port Richmond

St. John's Lutheran, an old German congregation in an old Episcopal church in Port Richmond, is a member of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. Of the two major Lutheran bodies, it is the more conservative and smaller. I've mentioned before that it's relationship with the larger, liberal Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is like the Sharks and the Jets. The only time I've been in the church was at the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. P. back in 1988. It's got a very cool little cemetery out back.
