For all you pastors wondering what you should talk about during Lent, the ELCA has the answer for you. Not Jesus. Not God. Not the resurrection. Not forgiveness of sins and victory over death. Let's talk about ENVIRONMENTALISM!
That's what the ELCA was suggesting last year. Now I believe that most christians want to be good stewards of that which God has given us, but is this the time and place for it? Evidently the ELCA thinks so. The ELCA is promoting it. ELCA Link.
Peruse this "Environmental Lenten and Holy Week Worship Resource" and you will find a lot of helpful ways to put the main focus this Easter on the Earth, rather than the Creator of Earth.
Be sure to check out this wonderful resource,
"A Tenebrae for the Earth" Worship Service. (pdf file) If you like over-the-top liturgy that makes a mockery of who Jesus is (as a friend of mine said), this resource is for you.
Seriously, this is the ELCA. If you agree with this and the host of other issues Exposing the ELCA raises, stay with them. If you disagree, organize and inform your church friends as to what your denomination is doing. Then seek a new affiliation as a church or join a Bible believing church yourselves.
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
