Bishops address financial crisis

The ELCA Conference of Bishops called on ELCA members and others who are concerned about U.S. financial health to discuss and pray about economic life, financial behaviors and “the interconnectedness of all life and creation that cries out to be reclaimed.”

Meeting Oct. 2-7 in Chicago, the bishops issued a pastoral letter to the ELCA, citing the economic life social statement adopted at the 1999 Churchwide Assembly.

The bishops urged members to use “Sufficient, Sustainable Livelihood for All” to understand the significance of theological and biblical principles in responding to the crisis.
