Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service speaks

Thursday after Pentecost 9
July 27, 2010

The Lord be with you

After the LCMS in convention passed resolution 6-07(A) voicing our synod's support for ending world slavery a letter from Linda Hartke, the director of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, was read (I guess she was pretty sure the resolution would pass). In some ways it is a wonderful letter. In other ways it is a sad letter, for she shares just how big a problem slavery is in the United States. I thought the readers of the blog would like to read what Linda had to say for themselves. Just click on the letter and it will become large enough for you to read.

Blessings in Christ,
Pastor John Rickert
