Greetings from Sen. Merkley

I had the opportunity to chat with Sen. Merkley today during an office open house. The ELCA has been advocating on the Hill this week around Disaster Response to Climate Change related catastrophies. Jeff,  course, is an Oregon Synod, ELCA, Lutheran and reflects our values courageously in the Senate. I told him our prayers are with he and his staff and thank you, thank you, thank you for working so hard in difficult days. – Bp. Dave
