comment What are the primary differences between these Lutheran denominations?
@MarshaAnderson It's not a common practice, and was mostly in response to criticism of a specific event. In 2010 an Anglican vicar received a bunch of publicity for communing a dog. Many conservative Lutherans used this as an example of what happens when you lose certain doctrines blah blah blah. In response, some ELCA churches had 'PETA Sunday' where many simply blessed pets but some went further and communed them.

@Mr.Bultitude the word sometimes is key in that sentence. In 2010 an Anglican vicar received a bunch of publicity for communing a dog.

In response, some ELCA churches had 'PETA Sunday' where many simply blessed pets but some went further and communed them.

comment Orthodox Priest Assignment
My OCA priest put a 'bug' in his bishop's ear about his grandchildren being in another state. Within a year or so, he was transferred closer to his grandchildren.

comment Does the Eastern orthodox church prohibit Christian meditation?
Part of me wants to answer, and another part of me wants to say - you should talk to your priest. I think your personal motivation has as much to do with the answer as what form and whether you should do it. But as a blanket answer: no, it is not prohibited, but it is not always beneficial.
