Our presiding bishop Elizabeth Eaton has asked all congregations of the ELCA to study the statement and offer feedback prior to fall 2018. To read the draft social statement in its entirety, go to ELCA.org/womenandjustice. Printed copies may be ordered online as well.
We'll study this statement every 3rd Tuesday from 6:30-8pm in the North Room through May. Dates are January 23, February 20, March 20, April 17, and May 15.
The feedback offered by congregations of the ELCA will shape the revisions by the task force who wrote the draft social statement. At our next churchwide assembly, churchwide assembly voting members will vote on whether or not to adopt the statement. Please plan to participate in a thoughtful, lively discussion!
