LCMS World Relief and Human Care: Sharing newsletter — January 2021

Martin Luther once wrote: “Our Lord and Savior Jesus has left us a commandment which applies equally to all Christians, namely, that we are to render … the works of mercy [Luke 6:36], to those who are afflicted and in a state of calamity, and that we are to visit the sick, try to free the captives, and do similar things for our neighbor so that the evils of the present may be somewhat lessened.”

The January issue of Sharing gives a glimpse of how your brothers and sisters in Christ are doing just that.

In this issue, read about how:

  • Cross and Resurrection Lutheran Church, the Chapel at Eastern Michigan University (EMU) in Ypsilanti, Mich., reaches out to students by serving up heaping stacks of free pancakes and waffles.
  • New missionaries continue to be called and sent — according to the Lord’s timing — in order to bring the Gospel and Christ’s mercy to people around the world.
