Letter from Pastor Dan

 


 

Earth1April 22, 2018 is Earth Day! 


 

As members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, we share a deep love for all of God's creation and a profound responsibility for it. Made in the image of God, we are called to continue what God is already doing for the earth (Psalm 104), enabling it to flourish. God assigns humans to care for the earth as God does, in loving servanthood. (Philippians 2:7, Genesis 2:15)…

 

 

"Almighty God, in giving us dominion over things on earth, you made us coworkers in your creation. Give us wisdom and reverence to use the resources of nature so that no one may suffer from our abuse of them, and that generations yet to come may continue to praise you for your bounty; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen." - Excerpt from ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton's Earth Day Statement.

 ELCA Response to the Humanitarian Crisis in Syria

 

“Give God no rest” (Isaiah 62:6-7) until that day when “the wolf and the lamb shall feed together. … They shall not hurt or destroy on all my holy mountain, says the Lord” (Isaiah 65:25).


In recent days we have witnessed, with additional horror, further atrocities in Syria in a conflict that has taken almost countless lives over the past seven years and displaced millions of Syrians and others... Our church is responding to the needs of Syrian refugees and displaced people...


In the face of this ongoing humanitarian crisis, our nation also needs to open its arms again to receive Syrian refugees for resettlement in the United States. We will continue to work in ecumenical partnership as we pray, advocate and work to receive refugees…
