The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America just became the country’s first ‘sanctuary church body.’ Our denomination is taking a prophetic stand against injustice!
The measure, approved during a churchwide assembly in Milwaukee, pledges that in addition to providing shelter for undocumented immigrants, the ELCA could:
— Respond to raids, deportations and the “criminalization” of immigrants and refugees;
— Fight individual cases of deportation, press for the end of mass detentions and lift up immigrants’ voices;
— Take “prophetic action” to extend “radical hospitality” to immigrants and immigrant communities.
