In April of 2021 Don Sjoberg, Rebecca and Stephen Larson, Karen Kuhnert and Gordon Jensen began meeting regularly regarding a history project for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC). We concluded that the church has an untold history worth preserving. The people of the church long to better know the documented and undocumented history of the church of which we are a part, The people of the church desire to share stories of faith as well as long to hear new stories of the people of the church. From these conclusions and meetings on Zoom, the Remembering Today for the Church of Tomorrow Project Coordinator Group was formed and our project began.
In Fall of 2021 the project received grant monies from the Lutheran Triune Educational and Benevolent Society of Calgary.
The grant monies are designated for the following aims:
to record ELCIC elders and emerging leaders to produce new oral histories for the ELCIC.
to combine fresh content with little known and dispersed historical resources from our Canadian Lutheran tradition
to pull our stories together in one common, dynamic website with comprehensive hyperlinks and embeded audio, video, photo galleries, blog posts...) so that it is easily accessible to individuals, fellowship groups, adult education teachers etc.
