June "Journal of Lutheran Mission" Available

June issue of the Journal of Lutheran Mission now available.

The changing face of global Christianity

Today, a historic shift is occurring. Christianity is moving away from the Global North (primarily Europe and North America) to the Global South (Africa, Asia and Latin America).
The June 2015 issue of the Journal of Lutheran Mission reflects on the way in which the Holy Spirit has moved the Gospel from place to place, working when and where it pleases God (John 3:8; AC V 2). Within these pages, readers will find papers presented at the LCMS Mission Summit held in Orange County, Calif., Nov. 20–21, 2014. The first day of the conference focused on the changing face of Christianity in America, while the second day focused on the changes happening internationally.
Please download the issue, and consider sharing individual articles with your congregation or in your social media circles. I also invite you to “like” the Journal of Lutheran Mission on Facebook, where Lutheran Christians around the world can continue the discussion started by this journal.
We have the sure and certain promises from our Lord that He works all things for good and that the gates of hell will not prevail against the Church (Rom. 8:28; Matt. 16:18). The changing face of global Christianity is not to be feared, but rather to be embraced in the confident hope that our Lord will work a blessing from it, both for the Church and the world, as people everywhere come to hear and believe the saving Gospel of Jesus.
Pastor Matthew C. Harrison
