Lutheran Witness: June/July 2007

In a church body as large as The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, a constant challenge is trying to stay in touch with everyone to some degree. This isn’t easy to do. There are 2.5 million of us in some 900,000 households attending 6,150 congregations in 35 districts from Maine to Hawaii.

The Lutheran Witness is one example of a communications tool that seeks to remind people that, although we represent many walks of life in all parts of the country, we nonetheless march under the common banner of the LCMS.

We have other such reminders, or touchstones, of our shared identity. Consider our new hymnal, Lutheran Service Book. Or the Ablaze! movement. Or the Synod’s Web site, Or the imprint of Concordia Publishing House. Or our familiar, burgundy, tripartite logo cross. Then there’s KFUO Radio, the subject of this month’s cover story.
