Reconciling in Christ


In 1984 Lutherans Concerned / North America started the Reconciling in Christ (“RIC”) Program to recognize Lutheran congregations that welcome lesbian and gay believers. During the 2002 LC/NA Assembly, voting members took action to include people of all sexual orientations and gender identities in the Reconciling in Christ Program. LutheransConcerned has now changed its name to ReconcilingWorks: Lutherans for Full Participation.

The complete Reconciling in Christ roster now exceeds 450 settings, including congregations as well as synods, colleges, seminaries, and organizations.
