During the coronavirus pandemic, the church has been scattered, stressed, struggling, shut in, serving … and saved. The Summer 2020 issue of Lutherans Engage the World speaks to all of this and more.
Read about how LCMS missionaries and military chaplains continue to serve around the world while navigating quarantines and lockdowns.
There also are updates on how the church is caring for her workers and assisting local Lutherans with the fight against the coronavirus in Africa, as well as stories of how pastors in the United States have shepherded their flocks during this challenging time.
“It’s daunting, yet the joy is that the Spirit is at work,” the Rev. John Zimmerman, pastor of Immanuel Lutheran Church, Scranton, Pa., and St. John’s Lutheran Church, Pittston, Pa., says in one of the articles. “God says to preach the Word in season and out of season. So, I do.”
