Dear Members and Friends of the Indiana-Kentucky Synod,

As you know, the triennial Churchwide Assembly of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America met in Milwaukee, Wisconsin August 5-10, 2019. On Wednesday August 7, the Assembly adopted a resolution that, among other things, declared the ELCA to be “a sanctuary church body.” This declaration has triggered a great deal of interest, debate, and criticism in social and news media, as well as among the members and friends of the ELCA across the country and this synod. Some of this has risen to a confused frenzy of questions and accusations, many of which arise from misunderstanding and, in some cases, misrepresentation of what the resolution actually says and means. With this letter, I invite you to take a deep breath with me and take some time to explore this resolution under the classic Lutheran catechetical question, “What does this mean?”

Please see the entire letter below.


Where every member is a missionary, every pastor is a mission director, and every congregation is a mission center.
