ELCA Churchwide Assembly Action CA95.05.44
Passed by the 1995 Churchwide Assembly in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
To express the concern of the 1995 Churchwide Assembly for family farmers and to echo the call of the South Dakota Synod for all members and congregations of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America to:
- pray for family farmers, their families and rural communities;
- learn about the challenges facing family farms; and
- support family farmers through advocacy for just legislation that protects family farms, the land, and the small towns they make possible; and
- To refer the memorial of the South Dakota Synod to the bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, as the bishop provides for the agenda of future churchwide assemblies.
