A Book by Pastor Joe Ellwanger

(Pastor Emeritus at Cross Lutheran Church)


Strength for the Struggle: Insights from the Civil Rights Movement and Urban Ministry is a collection of stories, and lessons learned, from the three congregations Joseph Ellwanger served in a pastoral capacity over the past 55 years and from his involvement in the Civil Rights
movement in Birmingham and Selma, Alabama, in the 1960's and in the peace and justice movement in Milwaukee 1967 to the present.

About the Author: Joseph Ellwanger was pastor of St. Paul Lutheran Church, a small African American congregation in Birmingham, Alabama, from 1958 to 1967. He served as pastor of Cross Lutheran, on the near north side of Milwaukee, 1967-2001. And he has served in assisting pastoral capacities at Hephatha Lutheran, also on the near north side of Milwaukee, since 2002. He worked as an organizer with WISDOM, a network of congregation-based justice organizations in Wisconsin, from 2002 to 2012.
