About 60 participants gather in the city where the Reformation started for the International Lutheran Council’s Oct. 11-13 theological-education conference.
The LCMS International Disaster Response Conference involves 170 pastors and lay leaders from five continents.
It may seem like devastating tragedies are never-ending, but there’s a light in the darkness: LCMS Disaster Response is there, “reaching out with caring and compassion in the name of Christ.”
Because of the generosity of LCMS members, more than 50 Typhoon Haiyan-damaged homes have been rebuilt and restored, and there is hope among residents.
There are still opportunities to help those suffering from disasters — particularly in Colorado and the Philippines.
