Commemoration of the Emanuel Nine

Commemoration of the Emanuel Nine

On Wednesday, June 17, 2020 at 7 pm, the UniLu community will join Lutherans from the Boston Metro Conference of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) for the Commemoration of the Emanuel Nine, the nine people shot and killed on June 17, 2015, during a Bible study at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina.

We will gather at 7 pm to stream the online prayer service that the Rev. Elizabeth Eaton, presiding bishop of the ELCA, and leaders from around the church have prepared. After the service ends, participants will be invited to stay in the meeting for further reflection and collective discernment about how we as Lutherans in the Boston Metro area might begin building a community through which we might together join in the pursuit of racial justice and reconciliation. The Rev. Kari Jo Verhulst, pastor of Lutheran Church of the Newtons and former pastor of University Lutheran Church, will host the gathering.

Time: Jun 17, 2020 07:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
