Setting the Table I

Lutherans in the Southeastern Synod meet for growth and diversity conversations at Shades Valley Lutheran Church in Birmingham



I hope that you will join other like-minded congregations who want to plan and engage in this opportunity for growth and diversity by taking intentional steps to invite all the people in our neighborhoods into meaningful relations in our Lutheran Community.

  • On May 11,  we will gather at Shades Valley  Lutheran Church in Birmingham to share the history of Lutherans of Color in the Southeastern United States, to receive some training in public exchanges in cross-cultural settings and to learn how to start cross cultural conversations with our neighbors living in our communities.   Over time, we hope a particular congregational plan will take root.  
  • Over the next year, our Synod staff will return to the Gulf Coast area to host those congregations who have begun a work plan so that together we can support one another as our plans take root and produce fruit.
