Theological Education Around the World

Engage_May-June2016_Infographic.jpg

The publication Lutherans Engage the World is always good reading, especially the current issue which includes a segment on theological education around the world on page 10.  Already in my own brief experience in Africa, I have seen confirmation of the piece’s opening sentence: “teaching the faith is a hallmark by which the LCMS is known around the world.”

In the states it can sometimes be tempting to take Christian education for granted because it is relatively common, but here it is more visibly evident what a precious thing the Word of God is.  Even in casual conversation it becomes quickly apparent that folks really want their children and communities to be more deeply rooted in the life-giving Word of God.  There is a hunger to know and understand what God’s Word really says.

Bottom line: the work you are supporting is both needed and wanted!
