Bishop Eaton's February Column: "We need to talk"
Bishop Eaton's February column for The Lutheran is here!
"Some might argue that the church is no place for such a 'political' issue, that we should be concerned with the spiritual, not the temporal. But I’m convinced that not only is the church the appropriate place for this conversation, it might be the only place where the deep, honest, even painful conversation about race can take place so people feel they have been heard, and change and healing can happen."
The January FaithLink is here!

The Guatemala Gathering, with our brothers & sisters from the Iglesia Luterana Agustina de Guatemala (ILAG), took place December 18, 2014 at Gloria Dei in Saint Paul. We were joined by Pastor Karen Castillo, President, Pastor Esther Echeverria, Director of Women's Ministry, Trainer in Leadership Development Program, and Todd Thompson, Director of Music, to learn more about how ILAG is growing and to discuss the 2015 clean drinking water project. You can learn more about ILAG at www.iglesialuteranaagustina.org.
