Typically, it’s said there are two sides to every story. But often a middle or third side of the story is revealed, providing another perspective to consider.



Three Sides is a monthly podcast featuring stories from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). As a church that believes God is calling us into the world – together, Three Sides will present diverse voices from across the ELCA. Listen as we share unique stories from the many expressions of this church.

  • From our members whose lives are grounded in faith, love of God and neighbor.
  • From our congregations that work every day to share the love of Christ with all God’s people.
  • From our global companions and partners that join us as we work to build up Christ’s church throughout the world.
