SENT Celebration Featured in Current Layman
Didn't get a chance to go to Milwaukee last month? Well, we're sorry about that, but you can still get updated on what happened during this celebratory weekend. Read about the people, resources, and enthusiasm that mark the mission of Lutheran Hour Ministries here in the United States and around the world.
Turn past the cover of the Sept.-Oct. issue of The Lutheran Layman and you begin to see the powerful legacy LHM has going forward. In this issue's "Speaking Up" column, we hear from none other than Dr. Oswald Hoffmann, whose voice reaches us from the past with a few words from a sermon he delivered in 1955: "We Preach Christ Crucified."
Next is a piece on the new Speaker of The Lutheran Hour, Rev. Dr. Michael Zeigler, who begins his tenure here on October 1. We're thrilled to have him on board and look forward to a fruitful contribution from this dedicated man of God. We also bid a heartfelt adieu to Rev. Dr. Ken Klaus and Rev. Dr. Dale Meyer who have manned the microphone of The Lutheran Hour over the last year. Their willingness to step up following Speaker Seltz's transition to Washington, D.C. gave important continuity and content to the interim messages.
In this issue, you'll also read about the ways Barna Group's research is informing resource development and expansion in the years ahead. Looking for a new booklet? Check out Rev. Don Everts' insightful read: Who Is Jesus? Easy to read, it's full of details on the Man from Nazareth and the sources that attest to His life. Interested in overseas ministry work? We took a few words to celebrate some of the wonderful milestones taking place at LHM ministry centers in scattered parts of the world. There are other new books or booklets noted in this issue, too. Among them is Screen-Wise Kids, a new addition to LHM's illustrated children booklet series. Elsewhere, you'll find (mentioned also in another place in this newsletter) the first installment of a four-part Bible study on prayer. It's on intercessory prayer. Read it, enjoy it, clip it out and give it to a friend.
Among other stories included, readers will find comments from Phil Johnson, chairman of the Int'l LLL Board of Directors; and Kurt Buchholz, president and CEO of LHM.
