"Five hundred years ago wars were fought over the very issues about which Lutherans and Roman Catholics have now achieved consensus," said ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth A. Eaton. "Church, ministry and Eucharist have been areas of disagreement and even separation between our two churches, and we still have work to do both theologically and pastorally as we examine the questions. The declaration is so exciting because it shows us 32 important points where already we can say there are not church-dividing issues between us, and it gives us both hope and direction for the future," she said. ... Read more »... Ã€ suivre »]]>

As the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) had already adopted a similar policy, then-Presiding Bishop Katherine Jefferts Schori of The Episcopal Church (TEC) and Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton of the ELCA were able to share their experiences of working through the issue.

          "It was significant that a broad spectrum of Christian churches - Evangelicals to Orthodox, historic black denominations as well as mainline denominations - participated," said Eaton.

          Following the Atlanta summit, Eaton and Younan joined Fouad Twal, the Latin patriarch of Jerusalem; Suheil Dawani, archbishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem; and several other members of the Palestinian delegation in Washington, D.C., April 21-22.

          Led by ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton and endorsed by the ELCA Church Council and in collaboration with the ELCA Conference of Bishops, the initiative asks members to join in a conversation about the future priorities of the ELCA.           "We're asking all of us to think together and to talk together about what our priorities are going to be so we can be as effective as possible in bringing people the good news of Jesus Christ," said Eaton in a video message.
...
          "We need you to be involved in the conversation," said Eaton, emphasizing the importance for all members to participate.
...
            In her report to the council, Eaton identified five major initiatives across the church. In addition to theological education, the initiatives include Always Being Made New: The Campaign for the ELCA, Mission Support strategy, and becoming a multicultural church.             "If we want to become truly multicultural, we have to be honest about racial injustice in our church and in our nation. That's how we start," said Eaton. "I think this is probably the most difficult and among the most critical things that we do as a church."             The fifth initiative - Called Forward Together in Christ - was approved by the Church Council at its November 2015 meeting. Led by Eaton and in collaboration with the ELCA Conference of Bishops, the process is designed to invite the 3.7 million members of the ELCA into conversations to provide ideas and feedback about the future directions and priorities of this church.             Eaton told the council that by their approval the church will "develop a process to take a look at our priorities and the future God is calling us to in this church and find ways together to listen to the Spirit."

            ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth A. Eaton is leading "Called Forward Together in Christ," endorsed by the ELCA Church Council and in collaboration with the Conference of Bishops. The process is designed to invite the more than 3.7 million-member ELCA into discernment about the church's future. From this process, a statement will be prepared that articulates future directions and priorities that the council, which serves as the ELCA's board of directors, will consider at its November 2016 meeting. The goal is to launch the statement in 2017 as part of the ELCA's observance of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.             "The Conference of Bishops dedicated a full day to 'Called Forward Together in Christ,' the process we are using to invite the entire church into a conversation about our mission and priorities. The bishops were very engaged. I am hopeful about this process and grateful for the partnership with the conference," said Eaton.              "We will be assessing where we are as God's people and working to understand what God has in store for us. We are going to do a lot of listening - to God and to one another," she said.
...
            In her formal report to the conference, Eaton noted some recent movement and change in the church's theological education system, especially among ELCA seminaries.              "This is one of the many reasons that it's important for us to sit together as seminary leaders and bishops to speak with candor, to speak the truth in love, if you will, so that the whole body of the ELCA may be built up for its vital engagement in God's mission of healing, hope, and reconciliation in the world," said Gafkjen, adding that the hope for the conversation with seminary presidents was "to cultivate regular, transparent and mutual communications between synodical and seminary leaders as we move, together, into God's unfolding future."             The Rev. James R. Nieman, president of the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, offered remarks prior to the conversations. From experience, he noted seven features for "healthy" partnerships between synods and seminary: financial support, bishop contact, selection of seminary board members, ministry networking, student recruitment, candidacy process and scholarly resources.
...
            "Almost all of us remember when it would have been inconceivable for the pope to join with Lutherans, in the birthplace of The Lutheran World Federation, to commemorate the Reformation in a service of common prayer," said Eaton. "Yet only months from now we will be experiencing it.
...
            "In the ELCA, we have many efforts to observe '500 Years of God's Grace in Action' that honor and deepen our yearning for Christian unity," said Eaton.
...
Eaton made her remarks during a Jan. 14 live webcast, "Confronting Racism: A Holy Yearning."             Eaton and co-host William B. Horne, a member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Clearwater, Fla., presented the one-hour webcast, which addressed the complexities and implications of racism in the context of the criminal justice system.
...
            Joining Eaton and Horne for the one-hour conversation were: Judge Yolanda Tanner, an ELCA member who serves as an associate judge for the Baltimore City Circuit Court; Leonard Duncan, an ELCA member and student at Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia; and Charlene Guiliani, an ELCA member and former police sergeant who is a student at Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa.
...
            Eaton said that, although the webcast "serves as a way to keep the conversation going, it provides an opportunity for members and congregations to go deeper in our listening and in building relationships. We must commit to looking for ways to continue the conversation in our own congregations and communities."             "But it's not going to work if we don't, if you don't, if all of us don't see that we are inextricably bound to each other, and as Paul says, 'When one member suffers, all suffer and when one rejoices, all rejoice.' When we can see that our story is the same and intertwined with everyone else's story, and, more to the point, that it's God story for us, then I think we might see not only the urgency but the beauty and holiness of this moment in time," she said.              "Why can't the ELCA be the church that models for the rest of this country what it means to have these difficult conversations? Eaton asked.
