In this Life Together Digest, the Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, president of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), encourages the church to repent as Lent begins and to look with joy and confidence for Easter.

Discussing the name “Concordia” (“hearts together”) that so many of our LCMS institutions bear, he walks through the preface to the Book of Concord, with its “teachings that show us that the Gospel is for troubled consciences.”

“Be consoled, my friends. Easter is coming. The precious Savior gave His blood … for all of you that you need not be troubled in your conscience. Christ is for you.”
