The Office of the Bishop continues to lift up our partnership with our global companion Synod the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Papua New Guinea (PNG) this month! We have recently shared with our partners in the New Guinea Islands District of PNG a video of greeting from our recent Gathering of the Ministerium, as well as have been sharing the Papua New Guinea flag at numerous synod gatherings. It is a wonderful time to be church together and we celebrate our relationship, which is rooted in accompaniment, with our PNG siblings and the many ways we together build up the body of Christ.
