ELCA Churchwide Assembly – Day 5 (Morning)

After Morning Prayer, the Assembly began to discuss the Social Statement on Education. An Ad Hoc Committee considered the proposed amendments and recommended amended wording to both the Social Statement and the implementation resolution. Considerable debate occurred, mostly “cleaning up” language or including groups which were overlooked. Action was suspended for orders of the day.

Greetings from Lutheran Men in Mission.

Voting for the common ballot on those tickets where there was no election.

Memorials Committee Recommendations on Sexuality began again.  I’ll use a separate note for that.
