Rose Parade Float Highlights LHM's Mission of "Bringing Christ to the Nations"
In Southern California each year, a dedicated group of volunteers from Petal Pushers apply elbow grease and enthusiasm in the fine art of decorating parade floats for The Lutheran Hour and some other entries. The Lutheran Hour float, however, has a special designation: it's the lone float entry that, in addition to being spectacularly constructed and ornamented with flowers, proclaims the Gospel to a worldwide audience of tens of millions of television viewers.

The 2018 theme for the 129th Tournament of Roses Parade is "Making a Difference." The Grand Marshal will be actor and activist Gary Sinise who is probably best known, beyond the characters he plays in television crime dramas, as Lt. Dan Taylor from the film, Forrest Gump.

This year's parade theme fits perfectly with Lutheran Hour Ministries' longstanding mission of congregation and community involvement. Throughout LHM's history, it has shared God's love with others through Gospel proclamation and by street-level acts of service and giving.
