Our group has brought resolutions of support for the Department of Peace to both area governing bodies (synods) of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (Eastern ND and NW Minnesota). The Mineapolis synod has also done this. We are now contacting our respective Bishops of our synods for one on one discussion of the DOP. We hope to eventually get the church at large to fight for this legislation. We are also working with anti-violence groups locally to help them with nonviolence efforts. We are also working cross-religious lines with UCC and Catholic organizations in our community. Are others doing this? Can you share ideas that work for you, ideas on bringing faith into the peace efforts?
