Offering a warm ‘welcome’: February ‘Witness’ looks at hospitality

“Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God” (Rom. 15:7).

What does it mean for Lutheran Christians to offer welcome? This month, The Lutheran Witness aims to find out.

In LW’s February issue, readers will find reflections on Christian hospitality, multicultural ministry, welcoming the stranger, foster-parenting, interracial dialogue and more.

Highlights include “Welcoming Emmanuel,” the story of one Baltimore parish’s quest to rediscover the Gospel and reconnect with its inner-city neighborhood, and “Sit Back and Listen,” a conversation with LCMS Black Ministry Director Rev. Dr. Roosevelt Gray.
