What is “Christ’s Kaleidoscope?”

Opening Up the ELCA Social Statement Freed in Christ: Race, Ethnicity and Culture and the Human Rights Social Message.

The Christ’s Kaleidoscope committee of the Northern Great Lakes Synod is once again offering a 40-Day Lenten Challenge. Christ’s Kaleidoscope is a group of NGLS people who are passionate about leading our Synod’s efforts to see others through the eyes of Jesus.

In a world that often feels broken, we can be reminded of Christ’s love for humanity. This year’s challenge will unpack and explore the following ELCA social statements:

“Freed in Christ: Race, Ethnicity and Culture” and the ELCA social message on Human Rights

When does the Challenge take place?

The challenge runs from February 15th to March 25th.

All you need is about 15-20 minutes or more per day in addition to an optional 1-hour weekly cohort meeting.

What do I need to do?​

Each participant will access the challenge schedule and materials here and be encouraged, but not required, to join a cohort that will meet weekly for conversation via Zoom.

All you need is a journal (physical or electronic), access to the schedule, 15-20 minutes, and an open heart!

How much does it cost?

Participating in the Kaleidoscope Challenge is free to all participants!

When do the cohorts meet?
