The Guatemala Gathering, with our brothers & sisters from the Iglesia Luterana Agustina de Guatemala (ILAG), took place December 18, 2014 at Gloria Dei in Saint Paul. We were joined by Pastor Karen Castillo, President, Pastor Esther Echeverria, Director of Women's Ministry, Trainer in Leadership Development Program, and Todd Thompson, Director of Music, to learn more about how ILAG is growing and to discuss the 2015 clean drinking water project. You can learn more about ILAG at www.iglesialuteranaagustina.org.

Bishop Eaton's January Column: "Baptism begins real new year"
Bishop Eaton's January column for The Lutheran is here!
"New Year’s resolutions are symptoms of our underlying disease. We sense that our lives are not entirely the way they should be. We have an obscured image of the beauty and wholeness of God’s good creation. There is a gap between who we are and who we have been created to be. So we try to fill that gap ourselves."
