Art as healing
How does art help heal you?
“As a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to grow in faith, affirm our gifts, support one another in our callings, engage in ministry and action, and promote healing and wholeness in the church, the society, and the world.”
Katharina von Bora Luther was a practical and bold woman of faith. Through Katie’s Fund, Women of the ELCA honors her life by supporting global connections, leadership development and living theology.
2122 is a $1 million campaign for Katie’s Fund that is designed to support the organization into the next 100 years of mission and ministry. Learn ways you can give to the campaign.
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.

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.
Our community of women called to discipleship in Jesus Christ is built on a foundation of friendship, faithfulness, and hope for our future together. You can help firm up our foundation of faith and hope by joining Faithful Friends, our monthly giving program.
