Since this year’s hurricane season approaches swiftly, and we are eager to begin Building Puentes as a synod, we invited the Rev. David Guadalupe to join us. Pr. Guadalupe is ELCA liaison with Puerto Rico.
A Building Puentes Update was held Friday, May 4 at 7 p.m. at the University of Maryland Chapel at 7600 Baltimore Ave, College Park, MD 20740.
We heard Pr. Guadalupe share present realities on the islands and ways we can best work alongside our siblings in the ELCA Caribbean Synod. Also, the Rev. Carmelo Santos, Hope Lutheran Church, Annandale, Virg., shared experiences after his return from his intentional trip with a proposal approved by the Metro D.C. Synod Council.
