ELCA Social Statement on Criminal Justice

Join Pastor Rich before worship at 8:00 am on Sunday, August 7, at First Lutheran in Chariton as we continue our study of themes and issues that surround criminal justice. The ELCA is currently in the midst of developing a Social Statement on Criminal Justice which will eventually be considered for adoption by the Churchwide Assembly of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. The study document which has been prepared to guide discussion and development of this important social statement invites us to engage the topic and provide feedback and thoughts that will inform the final form of the statement. On August 7 we will focus particularly on the law enforcement context of criminal justice.
