Reconciling Lutherans is a program of ReconcilingWorks for individuals. We invite all Lutherans to publicly witness to their call for a church and world that welcome and include all: People of every age, class, color, ethnic origin; people of all sexual orientations and gender identities; people who are single, married, divorced, separated, blessed or partnered; people who are temporarily-able, disabled, or of differing abilities.
Please sign up,even if you are already a member of ReconcilingWorks and even if you are a member of a Reconciling in Christ (RIC) Congregation.
As members of the body of Christ, we are called to be ministers of reconciliation both in the church and in the world. Through our baptism we are reconciled to God through the saving grace of Christ Jesus. As children of God, Christ calls us to lives of reconciliation, wholeness, integrity and authenticity. We are challenged by the Gospel to be agents of healing and love within our church and society.
We affirm with the apostle Paul that in Christ "there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female" (Gal 3:28). Christ has made us one body with many members, equal at the foot of the cross and at Christ's table of blessing and promise. God's extravagant welcome is sure.
Please Note: new Reconciling Lutherans will be processed, but will not be added to this page as we transition to a new website.
