The November The Lutheran Witness

The November issue of The Lutheran Witness looks both backward and forward, marking blessings and challenges in the past and the way in which the Church is meeting them moving forward. In this special “State of the Synod” issue, topics range from the Koinonia Project and the way in which repentance and harmony are encouraged across the Synod to district visitations, which are promoting accountability and transparency.

Financial information, including district gifts as well as trends and shifts in individual giving, is listed as well as numbers and statistics on rostered church workers, those on candidate status and how many congregations were removed and opened in the past year. Important details on the number of missionaries the Synod is currently putting on the field, as well as how much it costs to support a missionary, are also listed.

Updates on the Wittenberg Project, the Synod’s task forces and ongoing work since the 2013 convention are also listed. Finally, readers can learn more about the work accomplished in the past year on behalf of the Offices of National and International Mission and also read a letter from President Matthew C. Harrison on why Christianity in America, and specifically Lutheranism, has declined.

We Are Lutherans. What Does This Mean?  

The Reformation was about how God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, into the flesh in order to be the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world in order to bring us eternal life. That’s what the Reformation really is about. That’s what being Lutheran is really all about.

“Where Do I Fit In?” — The New “What Does This Mean?”

Paul was not meant to “fit into” society. He was sent to proclaim Christ. We were not meant to “fit into” society. We were meant to shine as lights in a dark world (Phil. 2:15-16).
