Good morning from Pittsburgh, PA. It is Day 5 of the ELCA 2013 Church Wide Assembly and we are soon to begin a new day.
But before we begin today, I wish to share a few thoughts from yesterday. We spent much of the afternoon listening to speeches by the leaders of our Ecumenical and Interfaith Dialog partners and although one might think this would make for a long afternoon, it was incredibly inspiring. As I listened, I became more and more aware of how we as the ELCA are a voice of the love in Christ to many peoples in other religious communities around the globe when they most need a partner to walk with. Under the leadership of our Bishops, we have been an evangelical voice of the gospel to a hurting and tense world. I believe this is an important reminder to all of us, who live, worship and work in our local communities that are safe from the dangers that so many other sisters and brothers in Christ live with each day. -pastorcl
From the Churchwide Assembly for our Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, pastorcl reflects on what wasn’t a “defeat” or “upset,” but rather, a new call extended to a new leader for Presiding Bishop. Might God be writing new chapters of the Book of Acts? This is the question on the hearts of those who took part in a historic election of our first female Presiding Bishop, the Rev. Elizabeth Eaton.
Several members have been planning ahead and asking when our education programming resumes. To keep it easy, here’s a short list of some important dates for you. We hope to see you actively growing in grace and using your gifts for service through the ministries of First Lutheran in 2013-14. Welcome back! -pastorhh
