Lutheran Witness: November 2007

By the time this issue of The Lutheran Witness arrives on your doorstep, many of us will have been thoroughly inundated by all the relentlessly commercial manifestations of the coming Christmastide. Lost so often amid this secular end-of-year hubbub, in addition to the coming of our Savior, the real focus of Christmas, is the season of Advent, the beginning of our Church Year. Yet Advent, as with the other seasons we mark throughout the year, helps us experience the fullness of our faith. Advent is a time for remembering; in this issue we also remember (and highlight) the important work of LCMS World Relief and Human Care.
