ELCA bishop to hold virtual town hall meeting

ELCA Bishop Mark Hanson

Mark Hanson, bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, will field questions at a webcast town hall meeting at 4 p.m. Central time Nov. 21. If the format of previous virtual town halls is followed, Hanson will take questions both from a live audience and online.

Participants can follow conversations on Facebook or tweet about the event using the hash tags #ELCA or #BishopHanson. Submit questions and watch the forum at http://www.ELCA.org/townhall on the ELCA website. Images and transcripts in English and Spanish are available on the website, as well as the opportunity to watch previous webcasts and monitor dates for future forums.

A tool kit is available at http://www.ELCA.org/townhall to help congregations host a viewing party with electronic and technical assistance, social media opportunities and more.
