The Vocation of Lutheran Ethics
Anna Ernst

"I also realized that I could do the social justice work I wanted to do within the church – which had been doing this kind of work all along... I want to try to explain my passion for the theological side of serving others. It’s like the ELCA’s motto: God’s work. Our hands. In worship class, I’m excited to talk about how worship reflects that God is God and wants us to get our hands dirty."

- Anna Ernst, M.Div. student
