Emergency Appeal Issued to Assist those Affected by Flooding in Thunder Bay

From the National Office of the ELCIC

(as printed in the News Release sent by ELCIC National Office sent June 6, 2012)

Winnipeg, 6 June 2012 -- The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC), through its partnership with Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR), is appealing to its members for financial support to assist Canadians displaced by flooding in Thunder Bay, Ontario.

A New Model of Ministry

“Stay tuned.  Pray for us.  Check back in about a year,” say Pastors David Wirt and Heather Spencer of their ministry with the folks at St. Ansgar and Redeemer Lutheran Churches in London, Ontario.  Together, the two congregations and two pastors sculpt a new model of ministry, a work in progress that to their knowledge has never been tried before. The two calls, issued simultaneously by two distinct and separate congregations, had no precedent or model; just energetic vision, an adventurous spirit, and a willingness to confront old problems in a new and creative way.
