March 4-8th is ELEA Lutheran Schools Week. This is our ELCA network of Lutheran schools across the country. My children have and do attend one of those schools at Trinity Lutheran Children’s Center in Fort Worth.
The past couple years I have been invited to come to the school during that week and read to the kids. Although a short visit, having the bishop come helps students and parents better understand who we are as the ELCA and that the school they attend is connected nationally and globally.
If your congregation has a school I would be happy to pay a visit during that week. I will be at conference of bishops in Chicago early in the week but still have time available Wed Mar 6th afternoon and all day Thursday Mar 7th. Friday Mar 8th morning and lunch is already booked by my sons class at TLCC but after 1pm Friday I could also come. #NTNL #ELEA #InMissionTogether
