BEIRUT/Lebanon/GENEVA, 24 May 2013 (LWI) - “We do not live in the mentality of the ghetto, nor in the mentality of a minority complex, nor do we live as dhimmi (dependent) people,” said Bishop Dr Munib A. Younan. “We have always been, as Arab Christians, building our societies, loyal to our countries and nationalities, bringing hope in hopeless situations.”

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land (ELCJHL)

The history of ELCJHL goes back to the first Lutheran-Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem, Michael S. Alexander, consecrated on January 21, 1841, but its members and congregations are rooted in the centuries of Christian tradition in the Holy Land. The church has had strong links to Lutheran churches in Germany, but in recent years also to the Nordic countries and the United States.

ELCIC National Office is on the move!

On Monday April 29, staff at the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada's (ELCIC) National Office will have to remember to show up at a new location when they arrive for work.

After 15 years on Portage Avenue in downtown Winnipeg, the ELCIC's National Office will move just north east of Portage and Main to new space on Lombard Avenue, Winnipeg.

The decision to move the National Office was no small undertaking, says ELCIC National Bishop Susan C. Johnson.
