1 THE DOVE The Dove: Sharing the Good News at CALC December 2017 From the Pastor In the summer of 2019, the ELCA will meet in Churchwide Assembly to discuss, deliberate, and vote on our 13 th Social Statement. This one on Women and Justice. In anticipation of this important work, I am beginning a series of newsletter articles on the Social Statements of the ELCA (of which there are conveniently 12). This month, let us reflect on For Peace in God s World. If you would like more information, you can find all of the Social Statements of the ELCA at elca.org/socialstatements. Dear CALC, There perhaps is no more appropriate time in the Church year than Advent to talk about the 1995 social statement, For Peace in God s World. As the introduction to the statement says, we share with the church of Jesus Christ in all times and places the calling to be peacemakers. This is reflected in our liturgies, our prayers, and is so often repeated in our Advent and Christmas hymns. This social statement begins by celebrating God s resolve for peace and goes on to name the importance of the Church as a place that uniquely contributes to earthly peace through equipping the faithful to act for peace in all their communities. We claim the importance of faithful presence in the world for peace, whether that be a disturbing presence which refuses to be silent, a reconciling presence in roles of mediation, a serving presence, or a deliberating presence. This active, peace-seeking faith is active for peace, guided by biblical insight, and lived in our time. Our responsibilities as faithful people is political: we are to act as citizens, taking part in the governmental systems to which we belong. Unlike the other statements we have looked at so far this year, For Peace in God s World includes an extensive and detailed list of specific tasks and priorities that we are called to in this particular time. Though this statement was written over twenty years ago, many of these tasks are still appropriate to consider today. As we experience this Advent season and proclaim the coming of the Prince of Peace, let us consider how we might support these peaceful efforts with others in Christ s Church. Specific tasks: Foster a dynamic vision of difference in unity Promote respect for human rights Counter and transform attitudes that encourage violence Strengthen the will and ability to resolve conflicts peacefully Insist that peace and economic justice belong together Support just arrangements to regulate the international economy Revitalize aid Support economic conversion Strengthen international cooperation Give high priority to arms and control THIS MONTH.
