Whose Land Is It?’

Dr. Reed Lessing’s “Whose Land Is It?” (November ’06) is invaluable because it answers the question at the heart of problems in the Middle East. His article is valuable both for its religious and political insights. A recent New York Times headline read: “For evangelicals, supporting Israel is ‘God’s foreign policy.’ ” The Lutheran Witness

Although I understand the paramount importance of our pastors, in their sermons, preaching the Law and Gospel and properly distinguishing between the two, perhaps it wouldn’t hurt if their sermons did something more

Worship currents

I enjoyed the article on the new Lutheran Service Book (“His Word-Cast in Song,” October ’06) and commend the Synod’s Commission on Worship for its fine work.
