Fall newsletter discusses religious liberty, tax-exempt status, Boy Scouts of America
Members of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod who expressed interest
in defending the issues of marriage, life and religious liberty in the
public square were recently invited to join in a conversation about
those topics Sept. 8–10 in Washington, D.C.
Read the fall issue
of the Free to be Faithful newsletter to learn more about their candid
conversation — and the experts who took part in it — about confessing
the faith in the public square in a uniquely Lutheran way.
You will also find information on legislation that would protect
churches from losing tax-exempt status based on their belief in
one-man/one-woman marriage, as well as information on the recent Boy
Scouts of America decision to allow openly gay adult Scout leaders.
Finally, read about four LCMS college students
who will serve as Young Adult Ambassadors on behalf of Free to be
Faithful, the Synod’s education and awareness initiative regarding
marriage, life and religious liberty.
“They are articulate and eager to confess the faith,” LCMS President
Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison explains. “And there are thousands more
just like them in our church body.”
