From the Michigan District
In June, 2020, a number of Detroit Lutheran pastors, District officials, and laity
spent a day together looking at how the Church is challenged by the racial divides
in our country and what we need in Christ for healing. What these Black Lutheran
pastors shared was at times both hard to listen to but also encouraging as we
recognized that, no matter what skin color we are blessed to be born with, we are
one in Christ.
An idea was conceived—to coordinate a sermon series on Racial Healing in the
Church and for the Community. After that meeting, the District staff noted that
the Lectionary readings from September 20 through November 1 (All Saints’
Day) seemed to work alongside the topic of Racial Healing. Seven pastors were
asked to write sermons based on the readings, and one family life educator created children’s messages, videos, and family discussion guides.
Pastor Poellet is utilizing not only the sermons during these seven weeks, but also the Bible study One Nation Under God—Healing Racial Divides in America written by Rev. Keith Haney.
One other outcome of the June meeting was the creation of the document “Unity
in Christ Affirmations.” These statements, approved by the Michigan District Board
of Directors, very succinctly state what we think or believe about racism. This
document can be found at michigandistrict.org/unityaffirmations.
Our prayer is that all the congregations in the Michigan District, LCMS would
prayerfully consider utilizing this series that intentionally addresses the racial
tension in our nation and how God’s chosen saints in Christ Jesus can think,
speak, pray, and act.
