The ELCIC, in partnership with Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR), has issued an appeal for prayers and financial support to treat Palestinian civilians injured as a result of hostilities between Palestinians in Gaza and Israel.
Donations will provide urgently needed medical supplies to civilians receiving treatment at the Augusta Victoria Hospital, a program of the Lutheran World Federation in East Jerusalem.
Lutherans are encouraged to participate in the appeal through prayer and financial support. Read more here.
Seeds, song, patience, justice--these are some of the images invoked in a series of Advent reflections offered by the leaders of the four Lutheran and Anglican churches in full communion in Canada and the United States.
Congregations are invited to download and reproduce these reflections for use as bulletin inserts during each of the four Sundays of Advent, or to otherwise make them available to their members.
