Hope at Work: 1st Steps in Community Organizing
 
ELCACS1027 - Hope at Work: 1st Steps in Community Organizing

A comic book that's serious about drawing people of faith into deeper engagement with their neighborhoods and broader communities. This whimsical resource follows the lives of two Hope Church lay leaders and their pastor as they listen to the joys and concerns of church members and neighbors and then explore ways to respond with public action. Along the way, they join forces with the fictional interfaith community organizing group MISHPAT (Metropolitan Initiative for Strong, Hopeful People Acting Together). Through these characters' courage, as well as their clumsiness, readers are compelled to consider their own congregation's opportunities for more effective public witness and community ministry.

This resource also has an online user guide.

Multiple Meanings: Bible study, digital
 
ELCAWO1091DD - Multiple Meanings: Bible study, digital
Lutherans believe the Bible is a “living word.” It continues to speak God’s word to us today, and God does not say the same thing to everyone. Bible stories often mean different things to dif­ferent people. In this short series of four studies, explore some of the ways this happens and some reasons why it happens. This downloadable PDF comes with permission to reprint and use in a group setting.

Galatians Christian Faith & Freedom-Bible, digital
 
ELCAWO1092DD - Galatians Christian Faith & Freedom-Bible, digital
Martin Luther called Paul’s letter to the Galatians “my Katie von Bora.” Paul’s conviction that we are justified (made right with God) by grace through faith in Christ is central to Luther’s theology, so it makes sense that he would think of this New Testament letter with the same intimacy and affection he felt for his wife. This four-session Bible study explores Galatians in conversation with Luther, who was a biblical scholar as well as a church reformer. This downloadable PDF comes with permission to reprint and use in a group setting.

Transforming life & faith - Bible study, digital
 
ELCAWO1097DD - Transforming life & faith - Bible study, digital
Most of us taking part in this Bible study will never be handpicked by God to witness to “Gentiles and kings and before the people of Israel,” as was the apostle Paul. But many of us do share something with him and the other biblical and historical people we will meet in these monthly lessons. In these nine sessions, we will meet biblical characters who find themselves transformed. We will read passages from both Old and New Testaments. And we will look especially at stories from the Acts of the Apostles and insights in Paul’s letters to the Christians at Corinth and Rome. This downloadable PDF comes with permission to reprint and use in a group setting.
