According to a press release from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America: "The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is ‘heartbreaking and infuriating,’ wrote the Rev. Mark S. Hanson, presiding bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Although the spill causes deep sorrow, all who care for the earth and work for its restoration can be confident that they are not pursuing a lost cause, he wrote in a June 28 pastoral letter to the 4.6 million-member ELCA."
