Gathering under the theme “Be transformed by the renewing of your minds,” the Conference of Bishops of the ELCA met at the Lutheran Center Feb. 28–March 4. The conference is an advisory body of the ELCA that includes 65 synod bishops, the presiding bishop and the secretary.
“Across differences, in the midst of significant challenges, our time together really was an experience of renewal and transformation in the power of the Spirit,” said William O. Gafkjen, bishop of the ELCA Indiana-Kentucky Synod and chair of the conference. For the first time, the bishops’ meeting included a two-day retreat to discuss congregational vitality and topics related to leadership.
