On to Churchwide Assembly
The Churchwide Assembly of the ELCA meets in the Minneapolis Convention Center Aug. 17-23. There are a few related activities starting Aug. 16, and I'll be there for it all.
I'll blog from the Twin Cities every night, barring an emergency or unforeseen complication. All effort will be made to keep the postings light yet still informative.
Most ELCA members have never attended an assembly. This is only my second. There is still much to learn about the gathering. I'll do my best to take an "eyes wide open" look at the event, trying to paint of picture of the flow of action and the flavor of the gathering.
Say a prayer for all the voting members. They have much to ponder.
More to come, from Minnesota.
