Some of you may have heard about the controversy of the removal of Pastor Nelson Rabell-Gonzalez in the Sierra Pacific Synod of the ELCA. It’s an emotionally charged story that reveals some terrible systemic prejudice within church structures. For that reason, I am grateful that our new reporter Francisco Concepcion has provided us with a terrific coverage of the events of Pastor Rabell’s firing and the aftermath in our article for this week, “The Removal of Padre Nelson.” Whether you have been following this story or whether it’s new to you, I encourage you to read it today. It is an essential story for anyone involved in the church.

We will adjust our normal meeting time on Thursday, February 10, to 1 p.m. Central. The gathering will join the already planned Book Hub webinar which focuses on rural ministry.
The next Book Hub podcast will focus on rural ministry with three authors joining us. Pastors Allen Stanton, Brad Roth, and Sarah Cordray have all done research and written about rural and small town ministry.
Join us for the conversation or look up this recording after the event. Invite your friends. Visit Book Hub for more information and to register.

How do you discuss salary and benefits when you have a job offer? The goal of this offering is to give students looking ahead to a career in Christian public leadership the tools they need to respectfully discuss and negotiate their salary and benefits. This webinar will also touch on the challenges some Christian public leaders may face when negotiating because of their gender-identity, race, sexuality, or any other identity they hold.
There are two distinct parts to this webinar – one for all leaders and one geared specifically for pastors and deacons.
If you cannot attend, we will post a recording of the presentation in the community announcements
