Synod Assembly – 2018

May 17 – 19, 2018
Hilton Houston North

FAITH5 (Faith Acts in the Home) is a simple set of nightly and weekly “enrichuals” with profound psychological, sociological, neurological, and theological gifts attached. Simple enough for a child to lead but deep enough to turn every faith gathering into a seminary (seed bed), FAITH5 is sweeping across churches and seeping into the DNA of worship, education, and pastoral care from the US to Latvia to Ethiopia to India to Korea. Come enjoy the theory, brain-science, systems theory and humor of FAITH5 founder, the Rev. Dr. Rich Melheim, an ELCA pastor in his 25th year with a specialized ministry call to enhance the lives of children, youth, families, and congregations across the globe.

The mural we created together at Synod Assembly is on tour at various congregations. Its tour schedule is full through summer 2019.

As it is, there are many parts, but only one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you.”

~ 1 Corinthians 12:20-22a
