ST. LOUIS, May 23, 2013 — The Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, president of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), joined 49 leaders of religious organizations in the United States in signing a statement that was sent yesterday to Boy Scouts of America imploring the organization to retain its current membership policy.
Free resources from the LCMS include a video, a Bible study, worship helps and opportunities to support the work of LCMS Disaster Response.
Companies that do business in Missouri are eligible to receive tax credits if they make a donation to Lutheran Housing Support’s Nazareth Homes project by June 30.
The Midwestern tornadoes, one of which devastated Moore, Okla., call for a strong response of love by the church. Our congregation — St. John’s in Moore — as well as surrounding congregations and the LCMS Oklahoma District are in need of our collective support now and well into the future.
Here are a number of brief resources you may find useful in addressing the sorts of questions that arise among God’s people when faced with disasters in this fallen world. They all seek to refresh the weary with the wonderful promises of God’s Word related to suffering, the end of this age, and the joys of the age that will dawn at our Lord’s return.
