Kindling Faith: A Review of the ELCA Social Statement on Abortion
August 3, 2022
How do rostered leaders faithfully respond to the Supreme Court decision to rescind Roe v. Wade?
United Lutheran Seminary will host a special virtual event for rostered leaders of the church on Aug. 3 at 7 p.m.
The ELCA published a social statement on Abortion in 1991. Lutherans have acknowledged that this is a very complicated issue with ramifications for all its membership. Now that the Supreme Court has overturned the Roe v. Wade precedent, we need to re-examine our social statement in order to better engage with our ministry contexts in a
faithful and transparent manner. United Lutheran Seminary is working with the ELCA Witness in Society team to present this timely review on Aug. 3 at 7 p.m. via Zoom. The cost is $10. Register here.
