ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton encourages the church to engage in difficult conversations about racism, while always trusting in the promise of God’s grace in our life together. We are all members of the body of Christ, and bound to each other in this work.
ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth A. Eaton and William B. Horne II, an ELCA member from Clearwater, Fla., continued their conversation on racism – a violation of God’s intention for humanity – in a live webcast Jan. 14, 2016, at 8 p.m. (CST). Joining Eaton and Horne for this 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 who shared his experience of incarceration, poverty and homelessness. Duncan is a student at the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia and an ELCA Fund for Leaders scholarship recipient.
+ Charlene Guiliani, an ELCA member and former police sergeant. Guiliani is a student at Wartburg Theological Seminary, Dubuque, Iowa, and an ELCA Fund for Leaders scholarship recipient.
