A New RIC Community: Emanuel Lutheran Church (Hartford, CT)

Help ReconcilingWorks welcome the newest Reconciling in Christ (RIC) community: Emanuel Lutheran Church (Hartford, CT).

Their welcome statement reads:

“Recognizing that we live in a broken world, Christ calls us to reconciliation and wholeness. As members of Emanuel Lutheran Church and children of a loving and merciful God, we acknowledge that this reconciliation extends to people of any gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, race, culture, physical or mental ability, economic circumstances, relationship status, or any person that has ever experienced pain or oppression. Because members of different communities may have been excluded from the Church in the past, we wish to make explicit our welcome to all. It is for this purpose that we affirm that ALL people are welcome here, just as they are, contributing their individuality to the wholeness of the Body of Christ.”
