ELCA Disability Ministries
April 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm
At the Lord’s Table of Good Intentions: Theologies of Disability and the ELCA
Wartburg Learning for Life invites you to join Pastor Lisa Heffernan, coordinator for ELCA Disability Ministries for a presentation about her work. A 2013 WTS graduate, Pastor Heffernan works remotely out of South Dakota, where she is also serving in a congregation as their part-time interim pastor. In beginning her work, Pastor Heffernan wrote, “As a person with a disability (spina bifida), this ministry is especially close to my heart. We are excited to renew our commitment to create awareness about the church’s call for inclusion, participation and faith and leadership development of people with disabilities.” She is especially interested in making a more visible commitment to addressing the intersectionality between disability, race, gender, and sexuality ministries concerned with mental health.
Available both on-campus [Weiblen] and via Zoom, the public forum is both for members of the Wartburg community and for all others interested in the ELCA’s work. All are welcome. On-campus attendees may purchase lunch to enjoy during Pastor Heffernan’s presentation. Please register here.
