In May’s ‘Lutheran Witness’

Speaking about the faith to people who don’t believe can be a nerve-wracking business. The May issue of The Lutheran Witness helps readers in doing just that.

in-lw-INGrandparents will learn how to start a conversation with a wayward grandchild who has left the Church. College students will learn how to defend the faith against professors and peers who think Christian beliefs are old-fashioned and out-of-date. Coworkers, neighbors and family members will learn how to speak the truth in love to those around them.

Readers will also hear about the Synod’s new “Every One His Witness” evangelism program — rooted in the understanding that God, not man, grows His Church. They will discover what Jesus has to say about those who acknowledge Him before others and those who don’t, even as subscribers will get a better understanding of how to find a congregational balance between witnessing to the lost and caring for those already in the pew.

    The April issue is a hit. I’m on my second reading and will read it some more. Have more issues that deal with questions people have and the answers from pastors. You can add one question: Why is Israel not God’s people? or something along those lines. I had one member who has insisted that Israel is still God’s people.
