  • Information from Chaplain (Navy Capt.) Craig Muehler, director of LCMS Ministry to the Armed Forces, about how COVID-19 mandates are restricting the constitutional rights of those serving in the U.S. Navy;
  • An article from Lange about how faith and love can heal the poisonous state of public discourse; and
