Canadian Interfaith Conversation
The ELCIC is a participant in the newly-formed (2012) Canadian Interfaith Conversation. View the Conversation’s Charter vision (2013).
On November 11, 2013, ELCIC National Bishop Susan C. Johnson joined leaders from various faith traditions in signing a Statement on Quebec Charter of Values, prepared by the Canadian Interfaith Conversation, expressing concern about the proposed charter’s effect on religious freedom.
The Montreal Lutheran Council, an association of nine ELCIC parishes, also developed a statement expressing about the proposed charter. View the video of the council’s discussion in response to the charter.
