As a church of the world, we are called to address significant social issues that affect the common good. We seek to bring God’s justice not only in the world but also in the church. As a part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America there are social policy documents, adopted by the churchwide assembly in accordance with our policies and procedures.
