“The Lord, for his part, asks us to be generous, to conquer fear with the courage of love, to overcome the passivity that becomes complicity. Today, in these times of uncertainty, in these times of instability, let us not waste our lives thinking only of ourselves, indifferent to others, or deluding ourselves into thinking: “peace and security!” (1 Thess 5:3). Saint Paul invites us to look reality in the face and to avoid the infection of indifference. 

Pope Francis

ELCA Good Gifts CatalogToday is #GivingTuesday, a day when people all over the globe tap into the power of generosity. Together, we can strengthen our communities and transform the world.

When you give today, you can double the impact of each gift you give. Thanks to a generous group of donors, all ELCA Good Gifts will be matched — one for one — until we reach $150,000. This offer expires tonight – make sure you give by 11:59 p.m. Central time.

God’s love is a gift, given through Christ. Thank you for sharing God’s love with others.
