ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton shares her 2018 Christmas message.
La Navidad se acerca a su tiempo de descenso. El año viejo está por finalizar, el año nuevo no ha llegado aún. Ya es demasiado tarde para alcanzar las metas fijadas en el Año Nuevo anterior, y apenas queda tiempo suficiente para darse cuenta de que, cualquiera que sea la forma o el estado en el que uno esté, esa será la forma o el estado en el que uno llegará al final del año. Uno recibe una dosis alta de “lo que pudo haber sido”.
Christmas comes at a descending time. The old year is coming to an end, the new year is not yet here. It is too late to accomplish goals set on the previous New Year’s Day, and just enough time to realize that whatever shape or state you are in will be the shape or state in which you end the year. There is a hefty dose of “what might have been.”

ELCA Presiding Bishop, Christian leaders issue statement on current U.S. policy toward Israel and Palestine
Forty years ago, the Camp David Accords between Egypt and Israel were signed and 25 years ago, the Oslo Accords between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) were signed. For many, these two events offered hope of movement towards a peaceful resolution of the conflict between Israelis, Palestinians, and other neighboring countries.
The Church Council of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) met at The Lutheran Center in Chicago Nov. 8-11.
