lcms-free-to-be-faithful-fall-2016-newsletter-promoThe Fall 2016 issue of the Free To Be Faithful Newsletter features information on important court cases and related issues at the forefront this year having significant implications for the rights of Christians to live faithfully. For example:

  • Read about Judge Ruth Neely, a member of Our Savior Lutheran Church — an LCMS congregation in Pinedale, Wyo. — whom state officials seek to remove from her judiciary duties for her faith-based beliefs about marriage.
  • Read about the pressures military chaplains and service members now face regarding religious freedom and what the LCMS is doing about it.
  • Read how the Synod and Alliance Defending Freedom have collaborated on a downloadable manual — Protecting Your Ministry (From Sexual Orientation Gender Identity Lawsuits) — now available to help LCMS congregations, schools and other ministries hedge against legal intrusions that may arise in the near future.
