Sanctuary Conversations

Tuesday, November 5, 2019 from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Sanctuary Conversations

In August at the ELCA Churchwide Assembly, a vote was taken that supported the ELCA becoming the first sanctuary denomination in America. To help our congregation understand what this means and how it impacts St. John's and the wider church, three conversation times are available. Please make an effort to be present at one of these conversations if you have questions or concerns to share.

- Conversations with The Rev. Karen Sease, Assistant to the Bishop, SEPA Synod will be held at St. John's on Sunday, October 27 from 9-10 AM and again on Tuesday, November 5 from 7-8 PM.
- Bishop Patricia Davenport, our SEPA Synod bishop, may engage this topic as part of the Upper Montgomery Conference Rostered Leaders gathering, which is being held at St. John's on Tuesday, October 15 at 7 PM. To attend this gathering, please sign up on the sheet outside Pastor Becky's office.

In preparation for those conversations, there are two documents we invite you to read. The one is a letter from Bishop Davenport to our synod and the second is a list of talking points created by the ELCA. Copies of both documents are in the narthex and parlor on bright yellow paper.
