Look what ELCA leadership is trying to teach its members.
The South Dakota Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America hosted a "Safe Zone Training" in February. The training is described as, "opportunities to learn about LGBTQ+ identities, gender and sexuality, and examine prejudice, assumptions, and privilege." (See here)
The Southwestern Washington Synod of the ELCA recently offered "Inclusive Church Training." This training was led by LGBT affirming group, Reconciling Works. See some of the ELCA synod's email regarding this below.
In a recent series of "Lenton Devotionals of LGBTQIA+ Lutherans," Micah Louwagie shared her "devotional" which in part said,
"My journey of coming out as nonbinary has been a journey of discovering the life that my bones hold, and of realizing that this life is good and holy. Living into my identity has been a breath of fresh air, a renewal of the spirit in my bones. The bones I once feared were too worn and weary to carry me any farther still have plenty of life left in them. God bless these beautiful queer bones." (See here)
"Nonbinary gender is an umbrella term to describe any gender identity that does not fit into the genderbinary of male and female." (See here)
"Micah is pursuing a Master of Divinity at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota." (See here) Lutheran Seminary is a school of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
This is the state of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
Diana Edis is an ELCA pastor at Breath Of Life Lutheran Church in Blythewood, South Carolina. Here is a prayer she shared on her Facebook page from the LGBT rights religious organization, ReconcilingWorks. It asks the "Living Spirit" to "teach us to embrace all sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions."
When was the last time the ELCA and Lutheran CORE, which holds to a Biblical view of marriage and sexuality, were featured in an ELCA publication?
