“What ethic do confessional Lutherans have to offer a conversation and culture wrapped up in endless dialogues and demands for social justice?”
So begins “What Does This Mean? Responding to Social Justice & Critical Race Theory,” a study by President Lucas Woodford that ventures to answer that and many more questions. It is an exploration of our Lutheran doctrine in light of our contemporary American context and the current varying calls for social justice. It seeks to address the issue of racism and those affected by the sin of racism in any given form, as well as erroneous generalizations about American institutions, the church, and the white community in general.
