Lutheran Peace Fellowship: What does it mean to Be a sanctuary denomination?

Led by Bishop Shelley Bryan Wee

In early August the ELCA voted to become a sanctuary denomination meaning that the ELCA is publicly declaring that walking alongside immigrants and refugees is a matter of faith. While we may have different ideas about how to fix this broken system and may have different ways of loving our neighbors, our call to love our neighbor is central to our faith. Bishop Shelley Bryan Wee will joined us on Sunday, September 15th to provide additional insight, answer questions, and explore with us how we may choose to practice our faith in the world with immigrants and refugees. The presentation also shared information about the work of Lutheran Immigration Refugee Services and opportunities for individuals to advocate for the fair treatment of migrants and refugees.
