Mekane Yesus and the ELCA: Speaking Truth to Power

Mekane Yesus means “House of Jesus”.  In East Africa, “Mekane Yesus” is short-hand for the “Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus” (EECMY).  In terms of active members, the EECMY is the largest and fastest growing Lutheran Church body in the world.  (Mekane Yesus has just over 5 million active members; the Church of Sweden claims to be the largest Lutheran Church in the world with 6.8 million members on their books.)
