Bishop Eaton's March Column: "Subtle shifts to works righteousness"
Bishop Eaton's March column for The Lutheran is here!
"Just as Jesus’ miracles in the Gospel of John are called signs that point to the new thing God is doing in Christ, so should our work for justice be signs that point to the new life we have in Christ. We’re pointing in the wrong direction if our work becomes the new life instead of a sign of the new life."
