Young peope are bailing out of the Lutheran church in Michigan and leaders of the Michigan District of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) are digging deep to change that.
I think they are going through the painful realization that more and more of their young people have left the church and are wandering and looking for meaning and purpose in their lives.
The LCMS is conservative Christian and is solidly anchored in the hope of the cross of Jesus Christ and what that means for eternity. But, the relevance of that seems to be blowing by many young people and others.
Check out this blog from the Michigan District of the church where they pose these questions and they invite conversation. Your opinion should be important to them. The answers will determine where many will spend their eternity.
