a conversation on the latest draft social message

Please sign up for a conversation with Rev. Roger Willer on the ELCA’s Draft Social Message on Government and Civic Engagement: Discipleship in a Democracy.

A link for the virtual meeting will be sent prior to the event for all who register.

Prior to the hearing, please read the draft social message.

Social messages are teaching documents of the ELCA focused on particular social topics. They are intended to focus attention and urge action on timely, pressing matters of social concern to church and society.

This writing project was requested by the 2019 Churchwide Assembly and authorized in November 2019 by the ELCA Church Council [CC19.11.47w]. From March 20 to May 27, ELCA members are invited to provide feedback on a draft of the message. It will be considered for adoption at a June meeting of the council.
