How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!“ Romans 10:11-15
We celebrate the beautiful, good-news-bringing feet of Brenda Bos and Julie Recher, two Proclaim members who received first calls this weekend.
Brenda Bos has been called to serve as pastor of Christ Lutheran Church in San Clemente, CA.
Julie Recher has been called to serve as associate pastor at Atonement Lutheran Church in Wyomissing, PA.
And how are they to preach unless they are sent? Many more gifted and called LGBTQ candidates are ready to be sent. We celebrate their gifts and pray both for candidates who continue to seek a first call and for the congregations and ministries who need their beautiful good-news-bringing feet.
Your support enables ELM to accompany, affirm, and support LGBTQ seminarians, candidates, and rostered leaders as they are called and sent to serve God’s church and world!
