ELCA presiding bishop issues letter in response to Orlando shooting
The Rev. Elizabeth A. Eaton, presiding bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), has issued a letter in response to the June 12 shooting that claimed the lives of 49 people at a nightclub in Orlando, Fla.
If ever there were a power behind the throne, none was stronger than Katharina von Bora, Luther’s wife. On Jan. 29, 1499, Katharina was born into a noble but poor family. By 16, she was a nun. In addition to her Latin lessons and sacred readings, she and her fellow nuns began reading other material: the writings of Luther.
