A social message is an official ELCA document that speaks to a specific ethical issue, grounded in Scripture, Lutheran theology, and already existing ELCA social teaching. Before it is presented to the ELCA Church Council for adoption, we would like to hear your input.
Click below to read the draft, and then follow the link to a questionnaire to share your thoughts.
The public comment period will close on August 31st, after which the draft will be finalized and submitted to Church Council.
We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God's grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person--questions, complexities and all. Join us as we do God's work in Christ's name for the life of the world.
