            CHICAGO (ELCA) – Lutheran leaders in the United States and worldwide are condemning the Nov. 12-13 attacks that resulted in loss of lives in Beirut and Paris.

On the evening of the Paris attacks the Rev. Elizabeth A. Eaton, presiding bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), tweeted: “It is night in Paris now – a night of grief, anger, loss. Christ is the light that shines in the darkness, and the darkness cannot overcome it.”
