​May 11, 2022

On March 8, 2022, I appointed a listening panel to review the interactions of Bishop Megan Rohrer with Misión Latina Luterana leading up to and on Dec. 12, 2021. The panel has thoughtfully and judiciously conducted their listening process as is appropriate for a situation as multifaceted as this. Informed by the panel's recommendations, and with much prayerful deliberation, I will reach a decision on this matter by the end of May. I continue to urge you to hold all who are involved or concerned with these matters in your prayers.

In Christ,

The Rev. Elizabeth A. Eaton
Presiding Bishop
Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
