How has the Christian church around the world responded to the Japanese earthquake and tsunami? I started checking for web-based responses on Friday morning and among the quickest seemed to be the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. Here in Michigan, the president of the Michigan District of the Missouri Synod, Rev. David Maier, started tweeting and asking for prayers for the Japanese people about it on early Friday morning. He's a church leader who's a veteran on Twitter and uses it to keep his members informed. And then there was a video from the Rev. Matt Harrison, LCMS president who told about his church body's response to the needs in Japan.
