The last couple weeks have created a great deal of fear and confusion for all people. As people of faith, we are encouraged to not allow fear to have sway over us.
In these trouble times, the Conference of Bishops of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America have issued a pastoral letter. You can read it here. Bishops Pastoral Letter on the Financial Crisis
In addition, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has released a document on the Background on the Mortgage-Financial Crisis. You can read it here. Background on the Mortgage-Financial Crisis
We are encouraged by an understanding of God that says, “Fear not!” Therefore, we will trust that God’s care for us as humans will prevail.
