• Dr. Guy Erwin - Keynote Speaker

    Dear New England Synod, I wish to commend to you a resource for congregations to watch and discuss. Dr. Guy Erwin, President of United Lutheran Seminary, served as our keynote speaker this past Assembly. I rewatched his keynote address this week and found it to be quite helpful. He identifies the challenges and opportunities of being church these days. Consider this 20 minute video for your church council, adult discussion groups, forward leadership team or general congregational viewing. Here is the link. We live in changing times where I believe God is calling us to collaborate with like-mission-minded partners. Let's find ways to be the people of God for an emerging world.

  • Welcome

    Greetings from Bishop Hazelwood

    Welcome to the website of the New England Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America aka the Lutheran movement in New England. We are a people passionately committed to rolling up our sleeves and engaging with the vast needs of our times, as well as the complex questions that surround us. Lutherans are people of grace, God's grace. When we are at our best, we embody it in our words and our actions. At the same time, we make no pretense of being a perfect people. Instead we consider ourselves, "sinners anonymous", people who are deeply hungry for God in Christ in our lives and our world.

    James Hazelwood, Bishop
    New England Synod
