Dear People of Hope,
This year marks 50 years of women's ordination in our branch of the Lutheran Church, including 40 years since the first woman of color was ordained, and 10 years since openly LGBT women/people could be ordained.
Some of you know, that the first woman ordained in our church was Pastor Elizabeth Platz, right here at the University of Maryland. I am personally grateful for her trailblazing work, and I know many of you are as well. Learn more here: https://demdsynod.org/50th/. And watch for more information as we approach the above listed November events.
Blessings of Christ, Pastor Julie

Luther's Small Catechism:
10 Commandments in modern context Sundays November 1 and 8, 2pm
The Small Catechism was Martin Luther's attempt to plainly review and interpret The Ten Commandments, The Apostle's Creed, The Lord's Prayer, baptism, and communion. A lot of people don't read The Small Catechism after confirmation, so we'll spend two days going over what Martin Luther said about The Ten Commandments. We'll also hear modern views of the commandments, specifically from The Forgotten Luther Project, ELCA World Hunger, Lutherans Restoring Creation, Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton, and a group of theologians of African descent.
Jeff T, now taking seminary classes, will lead these sessions. Join here: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86967238992?pwd=QTYrODM1QnVmRUMxMFYwL2pTWDZjdz09
