June 1st is here

Ok, folks, to paraphrase the little girl from the movie Poltergeist, “It’s heeerrrrre!!”

June 1st is Friday, and the last chance to register for Reconciling Works 2012 prior to online registration closing. 

     This is an opportunity not to be missed.  If you are committed to full inclusion for all people in the life of the Lutheran church, if you are committed to social justice for everyone, if you believe that the message of Christ, the Gospel, and Christ’s church is for all children of God, if you want to share your experience and success in advocating for equality, if you want to learn how to work smarter for the betterment of all, Reconciling Works 2012 is for you.

     On the heels of this message, I will send out the catalogue of workshops being presented.  This panel of workshops is the most invigorating, energizing and diverse set of presentations by extraordinarily qualified moderators and experts ever assembled for one of our assemblies.

      And ELCA Presiding Bishop Mark Hanson is going to be with us for worship and then giving the keynote address on Saturday, July 7.  On Tuesday, July 10, those who wish can visit their elected Congressional Senators and Representative, in groups led by docents familiar with such visits, fully-prepared by training during the assembly to comment on matters before the Congress that affect our lives as Lutherans living in a secular society still unacceptably rife with inequality and discrimination.

      There is still time to be part of this assembly.  Go to www.lcna.org/assembly and register. 


See you in Washington, D.C., in July…
