2023 Nebraska Synod Assembly Report
The theme for this year’s assembly, as well as for the whole synod for June, 2023-May, 2024 is “Go, and…” Bishop Johnson and the guest speakers, Rev. Maristela Freiberg; and Rev. Christopher Otten, all focused on this theme. Each month, there is a focus or action to complete the “Go, and…” starting with “Pray” this month. The Synod has provided activities and resources for devotion and reflection for each theme, as well as resources for leadership teams: https://nebraskasynod.org/go-and/
