Great Stuff Found on the Web — Blessings, Gifts, Challenges — May 2011 Lutheran Witness

Found this information on the latest Lutheran Witness posted on Witness, Mercy, Life Together Blog:


The May 2011 Lutheran Witness is hot off the press. You can get it from the Lutheran Witness site. (Download here). President Harrison begins the issue:

“At my request, The Lutheran Witness staff has put together this issue to inform the good folks of Synod about the financial realities that we face. The funding of this multi-billion-dollar institution called The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod is complex, to say the least. It took me a good five to six years working at the International Center before I actually began to understand it. The first step in addressing a challenge is honesty about its existence and its probable causes. But this must be done with an eye on our blessings, which are truly extraordinary. We are in a definite predicament, but it’s hardly all doom and gloom.”
