In the comments on his post yesterday, Joshua Scheer mentioned the need for a fund to support pastors in financial need. Today I noticed on the synod’s website a call for donations to the “Soldiers of the Cross” fund. It has been in existence since 2004 and requests for help are increasing. The fund is currently depleted. We hope BJS readers will consider giving a gift to help them raise their goal of $300,000
By the way, kudos to the president’s staff and the communications department for the series of churchly articles scrolling through the home page of the synod website (http://www.lcms.org/default.asp).
