Location: TBA (but definitely in-person)
an ONLINE gathering of all youth (6th-12th grade) of the Southeastern Synod,
especially those from Tennessee
We will explore what it means to SHARE OUR GOSPEL STORY together by gathering online and learning how God is active in our lives, even when we don't realize it!
And this is what sets our SOUL ON FIRE!
Thursday, May 21, 7:00pm EDT / 6:00pm CDT
We are grateful for so many of our leaders in the ELCA and the Southeastern Synod for gathering together to hold this most important conversation.
Our host was Southeastern Synod Bishop, Bishop Kevin Strickland.
Our panelists included: ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton, Pastor Albert Starr (ELCA Director for Ethnic Specific, Multicultural Ministries and Racial Justice Team of the ELCA), Ms. Judith Roberts (Director for Racial Justice Ministries, ELCA), Pastor Ron Bonner (Pastor for Community Engagement at Redeemer LC, Atlanta, GA), Ms. Roxann Thompson (President of African Descent Lutheran Association for the Southeastern Synod, and Southeastern Synod Council member), Pastor Tiffany Chaney (Associate Director for African Descent Ministries in the ELCA, Systems Director - Business Development at Baptist Health), Pastor Matt Steinhauer (Southeastern Synod, Assistant to the Bishop and Director for Advocacy)
We thank these panelists, and our host, Bishop Strickland.
TAKE ACTION NOW!
If you would like to support the Advocacy for Hate Crime Legislation in Georgia, this page has email addresses and brief descriptions of the officeholder’s position, and any “special” instructions. If time is a factor, writing one letter and copying and pasting all the addressees would be OK.
The Senate Judiciary Committee must vote this legislation out of committee first. So contact all of them that you are able.
