She’s the first of her kind: Elizabeth Eaton is the first woman Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America.  She presides over a four million member congregation, and she is taking on rock star status in Charlotte this weekend.  Bishop Eaton – along with 2,000 women of the ELCA church – is making her presence known in Charlotte.   “I take this role very seriously.  Remember it’s not about me.  I am just the one inhabiting the body of the Bishop.  This is important for other women and for men.”

The Women of the ELCA are here to worship and fellowship, but they’ve also arrived in the Queen City prepared to serve the local and global communities.  In the boughs of the Civic Center, Lutheran women form a sewing circle, whipping up beautiful quilts to be shipped to those in need oversees.  They are collecting gift cards, clothing, and home supplies to deliver to Charlotte shelters.  They’ve knitted elaborate shawls to  warm the bodies and souls of the needy in town.

The mission is deep and broad.  The women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church write letters of encouragement to American women serving in the military.  They have resolved to stand up against human trafficking, and to support immigrant children crossing the border scared and alone.

While healing fellow humans in crisis emerges on top of the ELCA agenda, there is time for uplift, too.  Young and old alike help paint a giant collaborative mural.  By the closing workshop on Sunday, the abstract design will arrive as an elaborate masterpiece. It  will serve as a powerful way to punctuate this year’s theme: “of Many Generations.”
