Faith, Sexism and Justice
In June 2016, each ELCA congregation was mailed a copy of the seven-week study Faith, Sexism and Justice.
The Nebraska Synod Justice Committee is encouraging all Nebraska Synod congregations to use the materials found in the study and submit feedback to the ELCA Task Force on Women and Justice: One in Christ by June 15, 2017. You may download copies of the study for free, order print copies for $4 each, and explore other resources on the ELCA website using the links below. The ELCA Social Message on Gender-Based Violence may also be downloaded below.
A draft of the social statement will be issued in October 2017 using the feedback gathered from congregations using this study. The proposed social statement will come before the 2019 ELCA Churchwide Assembly. The Synod Justice Committee will be facilitating hearings on the draft statement throughout the Synod during this time. More information about this social statement process may be found below.
