Today we went to a hunger event sponsored by the Southern California West Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. What does that mean?
The "synod" is a geographical area in our national church. This one covers LA county mostly. John Nunes spoke. He is the head of Lutheran World Relief. I attended a workshop on Jubilee: debt cancellation. There were so many resources. There were some young faces in the crowd. But one has to ask the question: if this is the whole synod, then where is everyone? If this is our concerted effort to give bread to a hungry world, then we feel like there should be some more people involved.
How do we do that?
