LCMS Black Ministry Spring 2019 TimeLine Newsletter

The power of the Gospel has greatly impacted the lives of African-American Lutherans. Only God knows the full extent of that impact in black communities, but we know that God calls us to continuously carry out the work of the Gospel.

Read the spring issue of TimeLine newsletter to learn how the Gospel has affected Harold Ray Brown, the Rev. Dr. William Griffin, Dianne Harris and the young men and women who participate in High Impact Ministries in Hot Springs, Ark.

One additional note: We extend heartfelt birthday wishes to Dr. Griffin, who celebrates his 90th birthday on March 24. May God continue to bless you in your life and ministry, Dr. Griffin!
