This issue of the Journal of Lutheran Mission focuses on the topic of mercy. Most of the papers found in this issue were presented at the International Disaster Conference held at Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Ind., in September 2014. The conference provided a forum for international Lutheran church leaders to consider both the theology of mercy and the practical implications for implementing it in their churches. The articles will, by the grace of God, assist missionaries, pastors and lay members alike consider the role of mercy and human compassion in the mission of the Church.
