Re-Formation: The ELCA wants to hear from us! Youth & adults are invited to join a conversation on the “Declaration of Our Inter-Religious Commitment” draft social statement. Our input will be shared with the national task force as they develop a final policy statement for at the 2019 Churchwide Assembly. If adopted at the Assembly, this will be an important milestone in the history of the ELCA and in our interactions with other faiths. Topics will include:
- What does Scripture say about other religions?
- How do we live in solidarity with our neighbors of different (or no) religions without compromising our own religion and beliefs?
- What about our commitment to evangelism — does this mean we’re not supposed to talk to other people about our own religion and practices?
Join us in the Choir Room following worship for conversation!
