In November of 2022, the synod held a series of meetings at 5 different locations around the synod (and one online viewing), where the synod hosted a meal and invited lay and rostered members of the synod to meet with Bishop Larry.
At each meeting, Bishop Larry addressed the assembly with an update on synod happenings and a vision for the future of the synod. This presentation was accompanied by a series of videos from ELFEC (a Lutheran Foundation established in the Eastern Synod of the ELCIC) at the invitiation of the synod’s Resource Generation Task Force. These videos addressed the subject of Planned Giving and ELFEC’s ability to support such initiatives.
An edited video of Ponder Anew 2022 is available for viewing here.
