CTK READS!  News from the Library 

This is the third month of reading and learning about Social Statements of the ELCA. As a review, these statements have been amended and adopted by more than a 2/3 vote by the Churchwide Assemblies. In the last two months 8 statements have been reviewed in the CTKB newsletter and these are the final 4 statements…all can be found in our library. Read, then discuss with family and friends. Please return to the library so others may become informed.

1-Caring for Creation: Vision, Hope, and Justice; passed 8/28/1993 Revelations 21:1 Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.
2-Human Sexuality: Gift and Trust; passed 8/19/2009 Galatians 5:16-19 So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. 19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery.
3-For Peace in God’s World; passed 8/20/1995 Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will   guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
4-Freed in Christ: Race, Ethnicity and Culture:   passed 8/31/1993 Luke 10:27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
