The warm hospitality and smooth logistics of the first Glocal Mission Gathering, held at Our Savior’s Lutheran, Eau Claire, Wis., April 23-24, 2010, can be credited in large measure to the amazing local committees that facilitated the event and the event’s local “organizer of the organizers”: Karen Ressel, a former ELCA missionary who served in Uganda. 

Servers with “Beverage IDs” is just one of the touches that communicated efficient caring. 

By the way, Glocal is not a typo.  The Glocal Mission Gatherings explore the local-global connections that make a world of difference for congregations and glocal companions.  Learn how you can participate in a Glocal Mission Gathering by visiting www.elca.org/globalevents or call 800-638-3522, ext. 2700.
