Reconciling in Christ (RIC)

The Reconciling in Christ (RIC) Program is for congregations, synods, colleges, seminaries, and other Lutheran organizations. Lutheran communities that publicly welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people are accepted onto the Reconciling in Christ Roster which now exceeds 600 settings. Most groups start the process of consideration by engaging in a study program or series of educational meetings. Hearing the experiences of LGBT people and their families often creates greater understanding and insights. St. Paul will begin a study on becoming a Reconciled in Christ
Church on Wednesday August 23rd. The ELCA has a very detailed
study guide that will be something we can easily accomplish in one
hour increments. Please feel free to check out the website https:// in advance. We would appreciate
participation as we as a congregation begin this journey towards full
participation. All voices are welcome and will be heard. We will
meet at 6:00 so those who participate in choir can join in. This will be the first of many meetings. If you are not a member of our congregation and/or live far away, we still welcome your ideas and feedback. We hope you will pray for us as we embark on this journey.
