Confessional Lutheranism in the News, Part Two

Religion reporter Brad Greenberg, a colleague of mine at GetReligion.org, has an article in the Wall Street Journal today about the difference between mission work and charity work. Read the whole thing but you’ll appreciate this quote that ends the article:
