On January 1, which falls on a Sunday in 2017, we also celebrate the Name of Jesus. It’s one of those days that doesn’t often get the recognition it deserves because not many churches have services on New Year’s Day.
In the name of progress, energy, mining, tourism and agroindustry interests want to avail themselves of the territory and consequently, displace the people of these communities.
All the changes taking place in the church and in the world have had a transfigurational effect on our ELCA seminaries. They are being challenged to become creative in the ways of doing theological education in order to prepare leaders for the ministry to which Christ calls us.
