english25The General Assembly of the Lutheran Church of Costa Rica met in June to elect a new board of directors.

At 9:30 a.m. on June 6, 2009, the assembly began with registration of the delegates and invited guests. ILCO Bishop Melvin Jimenez gave the welcome message, while the opening devotion was lead by Pastor Gilberto Quesada based on Nehemiah 5:1-15, emphasizing verse 11: “Give back to them immediately their fields, vineyards, olive groves and houses, and also the usury you are charging them – the hundredth part of the money, grain, new wine and oil.” This passage helps explain why the Lutheran Church of Costa Rica has been an active member of the process to create “10 Measures to Confront the Crisis with Social and Productive Inclusion” – a document created by various social organizations to provide concrete ways to mitigate the economic crisis while protecting the most vulnerable.

Manu Center was created in 1995 by three institutions: the Lutheran Church of Costa Rica (ILCO), the Educational Cooperative for Costa Rican Development (CEDECO), and Ecumenical Services for Christian Development in Central America (SEFCA). The 12-hectare center boasts primary rain forest and is used for youth camps, workshops and training activities for a variety of nonprofits and ecumenical organizations. It also offers a recreational and reflective space for local and international visitors.
