Faith in Action
On Our Radar
As Christians, it’s important for us to talk about the difference between our Christian faith and Christian Nationalism. Christian Nationalism is a distortion of the Christian faith, not a representation of it. As the Christians Against Christian Nationalism statement says, "Whether we worship at a church, mosque, synagogue, or temple, America has no second-class faiths. All are equal under the U.S. Constitution."

ELCA Social Message on Gun-Related Violence and Trauma
The ELCA is currently working on creating a social message about gun-related violence and trauma. Social messages are ELCA teaching documents that draw from existing social teaching but throw a fuller and sharper spotlight on a particular social issue. The draft’s themes focus on trauma, public health, and an ethic of shared responsibility for peacemaking, seeking to move beyond the strict polarization of gun rights vs. gun control.
