ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton will record a sermon which congregations and synods can include in their worship services on Sunday, June 7, The Holy Trinity. The video will be available to view and download on May 31 at YouTube.com/ELCA and Vimeo.com/ELCA. Please refrain from sharing the recording on social media before June 7. Bishop Eaton will read the gospel appointed for this day prior to the sermon. Local decisions can be made to use the reading on the video or invite another person to read the gospel instead.
ELCA Worship will provide a resource that includes texts for a Service of the Word, readings, prayers and song suggestions. Synods or congregations may adapt this resource to produce online worship offerings to surround Bishop Eaton’s sermon. This material will be available on May 26. On June 7, “Worship in the Home” via the ELCA Worship blog will include a link to watch Bishop Eaton’s sermon as part of these home devotions.
Even if your congregation has planned a service for June 7, please share the links with your members. More than one worship service in a day is never a bad thing!
