The annual synodical gathering of Women of the ELCA took place June 19 at St. Paul’s Lutheran in Waverly and online via Zoom for those who chose not to attend in person.
“Just Love” Theme
This year’s theme centered around “Just Love — Following Jesus is messy. Loving one another is justice. We are not perfect. We are one body in Christ.”
Bishop Andrea DeGroot-Nesdahl led Bible Study and Pastor Kyle Barton, Chaplain for Lutheran Services in Iowa, preached and shared about his new call at LSI. The business portion of the meeting included reports and voting for officers, board members and resolutions.
