The 2021 Synod Assembly season looks a little different this year, while many of us are gathering virtually. To make sure the work of welcome, inclusion, celebration, and advocacy for our LGBTQIA+ siblings continues in our Synod conversations and actions, we have compiled some helpful resources to use virtually. Feel free to share them in your virtual tables, or with those interested in learning more about the Reconciling in Christ (RIC) Journey.
As you support those in your Synod through virtual tables, here are some links to help aid in their RIC Journey, and continuing to set new RIC milestones.
In the 2021 Assembly Season, there are 10 Bishop elections. They are:
2A Sierra Pacific
2B Southwest California
3F Southwestern Minnesota
5F Northeastern Iowa
5L LaCrosse Area
7D Upstate New York
7G Slovak Zion
8H West Virginia – Western Maryland
9B North Carolina
Please pray for all those involved in every bishop election. Every bishop is important to the whole ELCA.
