Book Description:
Lenny Duncan is an unlikely pastor, formerly incarcerated, formerly homeless, and formerly unchurched, he is now a black preacher in the whitest denomination in the United States: the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.  Shifting demographics and shrinking congregations make the headlines, but Duncan connects the church’s lack of diversity to its lack of vitality.  Part manifesto, part confession, and all love letter, Dear Church offers a bold new vision for the future of the church.

A limited number of books will be available for purchase at Immanuel, or purchase your own elsewhere (available on Amazon).  Please sign up at the Registration Desk or with
