Alaska Synod Core Values
As a synod of the ELCA, who are we and what do we value? When are we at our best?
Over the next few months, the congregations and ministries in our synod will work on answering those important questions as we take part in a process to discern and articulate our key values. These values will give us a shared core from which to discern who the next bishop should be. These will envision what the synod looks like when we are at our best and call us to embody that, not at some time in the future, but now, in the present.
These guiding principles will then be shared across the synod. These will be incorporated into the questions asked of our nominees for bishop. A more detailed timeline of events about the election process will be shared next fall.
In preparation for your congregation gathering to do this work, we ask for prayer and reflection on these questions:
We ask for your prayers for our whole synod as we do this important work in preparation for electing a new Alaska Synod Bishop in 2024.
