The June/July Lutheran Witness, mailed May 29, is the magazine’s annual combined issue. It is also a “family” issue this year.
The cover story by Dr. John W. Oberdeck, assistant director for lay ministry and professor of theology at Concordia University Wisconsin, focuses on fathers and sons.
A second story by Gretchen Roberts highlights a strong sense of family and vocation in the vineyards of California, while with the help of Concordia Historical Institute, Kim Plummer Krull, in a third story, uncovers a bit of high drama and “family” history from our Synod’s early years.
Finally, Rebekah Curtis, a mother of four, offers suggestions for helping families with children attend worship.
The Lutheran Witness returns to its monthly schedule with the August issue, due to be mailed July 31.
