The 2020 Southeastern Minnesota Synod Assembly, which was originally scheduled to take place May 15 and 16 at the Mayo Civic Center in Rochester, has been canceled due to the coronavirus crisis. Despite that, the churchwide office has prepared and sent greetings and inspiration from the Rev. Elizabeth Eaton, presiding bishop of the ELCA. The next paragraph is the introduction to her video message.
A thriving church is one so convinced of the resurrection that we’re free to give our lives in service to others. Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton shares how the ELCA continues to thrive in country churches, cityscapes, and places with no walls in this message for 2020 Synod Assemblies.
