Considering how large our church body is, we rarely get any media coverage. Usually this is a blessing since many of the members of the mainstream media don’t know how to discuss religion very well.

But it also probably has something to do with a somewhat weak Communications department.
Anyway, here’s a nice little story from a small newspaper in Missouri about the LCMS’ Laborers for Christ program.
