"All this is from God, who reconciled us through Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation."
—2 Corinthians 5:18
You are invited to participate in Reconciling Works 2012, the biennial assembly of Lutherans Concerned / North America and Reconciling in Christ conference. Reconciling Works 2012 will be held in Washington, DC July 6—10, 2012.
Reconciling Works 2012 is more than a conference. It is an opportunity to explore and live out the work of reconciliation that we are called to do. Justice requires reconciliation, and reconciliation takes effort. Throughout our time together, we will work on justice issues from the intersection of oppressions (racism, sexism, ablism, etc.) and through the lens of full participation of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities in the life of the Lutheran Church.
We’ll worship together, using a rich variety of traditions of the worshipping community. We’ll provide a blend of the familiar and the unique drawing on our Lutheran heritage and the wealth of liturgical practice in the area. We’ll network with one another, hear stories of joy and frustration, and make decisions together about the future direction of ReconcilingWorks (formerly Lutherans Concerned) and our Reconciling in Christ communities.
Special opportunities Include:
- Optional Pre-events July 6—7 that will help participants dive deeper into specific topics and connect with others
- Speakers who will address justice, the intersection of oppressions, and our future together in the Lutheran Church
- Saturday night banquet and celebration
