Lutheran Witness: March 2012

In March’s issue of The Lutheran Witness, we turn our focus away from earthly things, from stuff, and look instead to heavenly things, to matters of faith. Read the Rev. Ralph Tausz’s “Surrounded by Stuff,” which unpacks our desire to find happiness in what is physical and material rather than that which is eternal. Learn with the Rev. Tim Pauls what that little phrase “daily bread” means in “Daily Bread for Ingrates like Me.” Take on the task of teaching your children to seek first the kingdom of God, not clutter, in the Rev. Kurt Ulmer’s “The Important Stuff.” Take comfort in knowing that God has already fulfilled of all your needs—both physical and spiritual—in “So Let God Be God” by the Rev. Barry Long.
