Listen Up! ELCA Has a Podcast
Three Sides is a monthly podcast featuring stories from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). As a church that believes God is calling us into the world together, Three Sides presents diverse voices from across the ELCA. It’s said there are two sides to every story, but often a middle or third side of the story is revealed, providing another perspective to consider. Find more information and links to past episodes at www.livinglutheran.org/podcast/.
