In early 2023, the Milwaukee Synod participated in a unique photo storytelling project exploring the question, “When have you felt included or excluded from a group or community?”


This weekend, MPLC will host a display from that project, and explore this question in worship and Adult Ed in connection with the biblical story of Ruth and Naomi.

Learn more about this project today!
