2020 Summer Spanish Language and Ministry Intensive

All of us are concerned with what is happening at the border.  We address the border crisis in our intensives in light of our Biblical mandate to “care for the stranger/foreigner among you, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt,” a powerful reminder by Rabbi Von Pesner whom I heard this summer at a conference in support of and in solidarity with asylum seekers and refugees at the border.   We invite you to attend one of our summer intensives, always a powerful experience with folks from throughout the ELCA and country.
