Breaking the Chains Action Update

The Greater Milwaukee Synod of the ELCA is planting 500 trees in Milwaukee to commemorate 500 years since the Reformation. Within one week of meeting with a rep-resentative of the 500 Trees Committee, two red elm trees donated to the Felmers Chaney Correctional Center were planted on the grounds by inmates who are regular wor-ship attendees. Martin Luther once said, “If I knew the world were to end tomorrow, I would still plant a tree to-day.” That is indeed a statement of faith and hope.
