Bishops’ Company Luncheon

More than seventy people accepted Bishops Huras and Pryse’s invitation to the Bishops’ Company Luncheon on October 5, 2019, in Kitchener, Ontario. This year’s Guest Speaker was Rev Dr. Susan Johnson, National Bishop of the ELCIC. She told about the work of Lutheran World Federation (LWF), Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and Holy Land (ELCJHL) and the United Evangelical Lutheran Church in Argentina and Uruguay (IELU), who are some of our global mission partners.
   “Jesus promised that when two or three were gathered in his name, he would be in their midst. He said this as a reminder that faith is, in its essence, profoundly dialogical. Faith cannot go on without talking and without listening to each other. All of our partnerships as a synod, national church, and beyond are ways that we live out this reality,” said Bishop Susan.
   The Eastern Synod has two global mission partners, the ELCJHL and Evangelical Lutheran Church in Guyana (ELCG).
