Pastor Lee Penvose once counseled me, "Focus your eyes on the cross of Jesus, then walk steadily forward." I find that to be excellent advice in all kinds of leadership challenges in the Church, and would offer that same advice to future leaders in the ELCA.
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.
