Social Policy Statements

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is in the process of developing the following:

  • ‘A Declaration of Our Inter-religious Commitment’ Policy Statement
  • A Social Statement on Women and Justice

Drafts of the documents are available at the links below, as are instructions for how to comment on the drafts.   ELPNA will not develop an organizational response to the drafts but we encourage individual members to read the drafts and comment.   Some congregations have put together study groups to review and discuss the statements.  Please note the deadline dates for comments.

YAMMER

GET CONNECTED WITH OTHER PARISH/FAITH COMMUNITY NURSES THROUGH YAMMER HERE'S HOW

The easiest way is to go the Church Health Center website, www.churchhealthcenter.org, where you can fill out a form to request an invitation. Since the Westberg Institute (our network) is a closed platform, members must be invited to join.

Once you have joined this platform you can join any of the groups that are of interest - like the Lutheran Parish Nurses group. You can even create a new group and invite others to join.
