On this Reformation Sunday, we who bear the name Lutheran must confess the history of anti-Semitism that permeates our church’s history. From Martin Luther, the Holocaust, and beyond, we have all too often failed to live up to our Jewish founder’s command to love our neighbour. As we grieve with our sisters and brothers in Pittsburgh, let us resolve to repent, to turn away from the tribalism that continues to engender hatred. May the Shalom we long for come soon and may we be part of it’s coming.
