We reside in a rich, multi-religious world. Given such diversity, what does it mean to be Lutheran? Members of the ELCA share a responsibility for this church’s relationships with people of other faiths and traditions.
Over the years, the ELCA has been engaged most deeply in Lutheran-Jewish
relations. Broader interfaith work has been undertaken through ecumenical bodies, such as the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA
, and through interfaith coalitions such as Religions for Peace – USA
"If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all." — Romans 12:18
