The Daily Lutheran is the newsletter of the 9th Churchwide Assembly. It’s published by the staff of The Lutheran, the magazine of the ELCA. Editor: Sonia C. Solomonson.

The assembly is grateful for major support received from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans. The organization provided grants for the plenary hall and in support of participants, volunteers and the assembly program.
Enjoy your daily cup of brew and think “green” too. Bring the complimentary mug you receive on Tuesday to the Augsburg Fortress display area and fill it with that Lutheran beverage of choice, coffee.
This Churchwide Assembly will be “greener”—more environmentally friendly—than past gatherings: 773 pounds of paper were saved by online registrations; 3,000 pounds of plastic were saved by eating from china; 15,000 gallons of water were saved by not prefilling glasses; and 15,000 or more coffee cups were saved by using reusable mugs.
A limited number of listening devices for the hearing-impaired will be available for assembly worship. If you need one, please pick it up in the sacristy (Room Crystal F) prior to worship.
