ELCA and the UN Commission on Women

Recently, on the DIAKONIA World Federation Facebook page, Jan Cherry posted a story about  two new, young Deaconesses in the Evangelical Lutheran Church - Clare Josef-Maier and Sister Liz Colver - who were recent participants in the ELCA Young Adult Delegation to the 58th United Nations Commission on Women held annually, representing the LWF and the ELCA.There were 5000+ delegates from all over the world who  gathered in solidarity to uplift critical issues regarding women and girl's rights. Clare and Liz  have written thoughtful, reflections on their experience (along with other reflections form other participants) and you can read them on the link here.
