And Who is My Neighbor?

A study commissioned by Lutheran Social Services of Minnesota, it is written by Dr. Eric Barreto, professor at Luther Seminary when he started the work, now on the faculty of Princeton Theological Seminary in New Jersey. Respondents to Eric’s writing are five pastors of color in Minnesota –who don’t always agree with him! This guide also includes a sampler of video aids and experiential exercises. Conversations on race in Minnesota is not easy – never has been. And Who is My Neighbor? is not the definitive study of race or racial equity. It is not even the first chapter. We hope this study will cause more of our neighbors to want to read, listen, understand, and better love our neighbors.

Building an Inclusive Church

What does it mean to be a church that welcomes people of all sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions? At Amazing Grace, this is a question that continues to spark conversation and learning. Joins Amazing Grace’s Justice Team as they explore the topic of radical welcome in the name of Jesus.

Women & Justice: ELCA Draft Social Statement

In the days of the #MeToo movement, an ELCA task force has drafted a social statement which will be voted upon at the 2019 ELCA Churchwide Gathering. This statement is an invitation to discern what the ELCA should teach about contemporary issues related to sexism and patriarchy in our society. Rich discussions will engage in this topic and identify ways in which we are to live together in equity and respect.
