BISHOPS EATON AND GOHL INVITE US TO DC RALLY TO END RACISM
In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., the Reverend Elizabeth A. Eaton, presiding bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), and Reverend Bill Gohl, bishop of the Delaware Maryland Synod of the ELCA, will join ecumenical and inter-religious partners for Act Now: Unite to End Racism April 3-5 in Washington DC. The focus of the three-day event will be a rally on April 4 on the National Mall.
The event, organized by the National Council of Churches in Christ in the USA, will bring together many ELCA members from across the country. The ELCA is a founding member of the council.
The rally’s call to action emphasizes three key points: awaken to the truth that racism is evil and hurts us all; confront racism through truth-telling and action to right the wrong; and transform the hearts, minds, and behaviors of people and institutions.
All are invited to join our bishops at the event.
Pastor Dave will be attending the April 4 rally along with many of our Delaware-Maryland Clergy. If you are interested in being a part of this event, please contact Pastor Dave. We will try to work out car pools to the DC Metro. Our Synod is discuss-ing the possibility of renting a bus or buses if enough folks are interested.
