Working to end gun violence

Rachel’s Day is observed by Women of the ELCA annually on the first Sunday in May, though it can be observed any time of the year. It is a time set aside to mourn the loss of our children and to renounce the forces of violence and fear. The 2015 Rachel’s Day resource includes a litany for use in a special Rachel’s Day service. En Español.



A leadership event

Close to 400 women from throughout the church participated in an online leadership event February 17-19, 2022, under the theme, For Such a Time as This: Spirit fed, Spirit led. Together they explored the challenges faced by Lutheran women (the challenges in our world as well as those within our organization). They explored the book of Esther, learning how Queen Vashti’s “no” made it possible for Esther to say “yes” to helping her people. They explored the hallmarks of servant leadership and investigated planning strategies. They worshipped God. And now these women are ready to respond to such a time as this.

Videos of both days are available at the link below.
