The African Descent Lutheran Association may have dispersed from its assembly, but the memories and mission lives on. This year’s assembly, held July 7-9 in Atlanta, focused on the theme “This is Us.” Over the weekend, ADLA members and guests gathered for worship, engaged with speakers, attended workshops and conducted business, including electing a new president, Jesse W. Brown Jr. from the New Jersey Synod. The weekend gathering gave space for folks to reconnect with one another and spend time engaging in various forms of worship, prayer and meditation. Here are some photo highlights from the assembly.
