Last weekend, we heard Pastor David Wendel, Assistant to the Bishop of the North American Lutheran Church (NALC), as he preached at all three Eucharists and answered questions about the NALC between services on Sunday. For those who missed his sermon, it is online.

Now it’s your turn to give feedback about what you heard and to aks further questions about the NALC. This is your chance to speak with President Beth Hales and Secretary Emily Burke about Pr. Wendel’s visit and further questions you have in advance of the second vote to disaffiliate from the ELCA, which is tentatively set for Sunday, May 3, at 1 p.m. in the nave.
