Make a Statement: a forum on the ELCA, Women, & Justice

RSVP via Facebook.

As a church, we have something to say about the dignity of people.
Our national church body gathers leaders together to respond to the timely concerns of our culture. These teams engage in deep study and communal listening to author a document that would serve as a guide to our faithful reflection and action as a whole church. Often, this takes place over an evolution of several years! Recently, such a team has worked diligently and drafted a statement on Women and Justice. They are seeking feedback on this work as it will be voted on at our National ELCA Assembly next summer. 

We're hosting a forum to reflect on these words and take note of the suggestions and edits that the Spirit has given our community to offer. Join us for a thoughtful discussion of how God calls the church to care for and advocate with all women.

People of all genders are welcome to participate.
Please RSVP on our Facebook Event so we can be sure to have sufficient resources available.
While pre-reading isn't REQUIRED, it will certainly enhance our time together. You can read the full draft statement here.
If you have to limit your reading, we suggest you focus on the first 10 pages which serve as a highlight to the rest of the document.
