What is it?: The ELCA website describes this as a five-part resource developed by ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth A. Eaton and the ELCA Ecclesiology of a Global Church Task Force. According to the resource introduction the goal is to “invite reflection, conversation and discernment about what being the church means today” and “strengthen the mission and ministry of congregations and the ELCA as a whole by going back to our spiritual roots.” The first four sessions focus on the four emphases Eaton has identified for the ELCA: We are church. We are Lutheran. We are church together. We are church for the sake of the world. The fifth session addresses the ELCA’s relationship with its global and ecumenical partners, particularly The Lutheran World Federation.
