In this month’s Life Together Digest, the Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, president of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), recounts the story of Rosa Young, who helped start 30 Lutheran schools to provide education to African American children in rural Alabama in the early 1900s.
Harrison notes the LCMS’ ongoing support of education and schools, highlighting the Rosa J. Young Scholarships from the Lutheran Church Extension Fund and the LCMS Foundation, which will provide over $500,000 in support of African American students studying to become church workers in the LCMS, in honor of the legacy of Rosa Young.
