Today at ELCA Churchwide assembly we heard the final report from retiring ELCA Churchwide Secretary the Rev. Chris Boerger. We then celebrated his service and many of the assembly chose to wear “unique” socks (a trademark of his, I wore my taco socks).
Boerger has been an excellent secretary and I am personally grateful for his friendship and mentorship. He was our Churchwide representative at our NT-NL Synod, ELCA assembly this past April. His pastoral presence, wit, good humor, and passion for the church and its right process was and is appreciated.
