Lutheran Hour Ministries and SAT-7: Partners in Middle East OutreachAs LHM seeks new and creative ways to find a hearing for the Gospel, it has teamed up with SAT-7, a long-time provider of quality television programming in 20 countries throughout the Middle East and North Africa. In a region beset by oppressive poverty, unpredictable violence, religious tensions, and ethnic divisions, the television is both a refuge and a welcome diversion. Plans are in place now between LHM and SAT-7 to develop and distribute a television series for youth and young families that will be culturally relevant and will focus on sharing the message of God's love. Broadcast airing of this program is scheduled for early 2018.
New Online Course Explores the Nature of the GospelWhat Is the Gospel? is the latest addition to LHM's catalog of online courses. It now joins the ranks with Intergenerational Mentoring, Sharing Your Faith Stories, and Christ and His Kingdom. In this new Gospel-insight course, users will get better acquainted with how the kingdom of God made its appearance in Jesus, and how this message, this Good News, is something that's meant for everyone.
Reflect on a Love That Came Down ~ for YouWith all the hubbub that attends the Christmas season, it's hard sometimes to pull back and consider the deeper themes of this wonderful time of the year. Helping you do that is what this year's Advent messages are all about. Love Came Down is written to help readers pause and think on the sublime wonder of Christmastime and all that God has done for us through His beloved Son. These devotions are now available online to download and distribute for the coming Advent season.

Send us a suitable shot (you at Wittenberg, Eisenach, Eisleben, or your favorite biergarten), and you'll come away with a very nice enclosure for your prize laptop. It's our black and gray laptop bag, sporting a stitched LHM logo (in color), and featuring side pockets; Velcro slots; handy pockets for pens, pencils, and cell phone; zippered compartments; and a strap to make it your constant companion when you're out and about writing our own theses.
"Build Me a Son, O Lord"Life is often described as a long walk. To reach your ultimate goal, you need to stay on the main path. But all along the road there are enticing little trails that lead off to the wilds, and we get curious where they go. Before you know it, you can waste days, weeks, months, years -- even decades of your life -- in a winding, dead-end trail. The last thing we want to do is get to the end of our lives and realize all our work, our efforts, our life have been in vain.
