At the South Central Synod of Wisconsin (SCSW) fall stewardship gatherings, Bishop Mary Froiland reminded us that the Assembly of 2015 passed a resolution whereby the synod and congregations address the issue of racism, and encouraged congregations to begin or continue conversations about this important topic. A resolution passed by our 2015 Synod Assembly has called us to join in these conversations.
