Nepal Disaster

As you know, over 7000 people have been confirmed dead in Nepal. Lutheran Disaster Response is there. We will receive financial donations for Nepal during the rest of the month of May. If you would like to assist with this need for financial recovery, write your check to Lakeview and note that it is for “Nepal.” At the end of the month, we will send all money received to LDR. If you use a check or an offering envelope, your giving statement can be credited. If you use cash, you can indicate your envelope number on the gift. Remember that 100% of what you give to LDR goes directly to recovery in Nepal. Thank you for supporting this devastating disaster.

"In order to be reconciled to one another, we must first be open to listening to one another. We must listen with open hearts and minds seeking deep understanding of another person's reality. At the recent People of Faith United for Justice rally, Rev. Everett Mitchell invited us to "sit together" across denominational and racial divides and listen and learn from one another. Such "sitting together" leads to insight, understanding,compassion and reconciliation." - Rev. Mary Froiland, Bishop of the South-Central Synod of Wisconsin ...
