Rev. Glenn Merritt, director of LCMS Disaster Response

Director Rev. Glenn Merritt continues to update us about the LCMS Disaster Response to Hurricane Sandy, what the LCMS Disaster Response is exactly, what we’ve heard from east coast congregations , and what we can do to help when a disaster occurs.

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Disaster Response Ministry responds to immediate and long-term needs following natural and man-made disasters, working through LCMS districts and congregations, international Lutheran churches and other partners. We build partners’ capacity to respond with Christian care to needs within the church and their communities with the following services:

  • On-site assessment
  • Emergency, relief and development grants
  • Pastoral care for LCMS church workers and members
  • Congregational Preparedness and Lutheran Early Response Team (LERT) training
  • Resources (volunteer coordination, donation and equipment management)

The last decade was an unprecedented time for LCMS disaster response efforts with multi-million dollar responses to 9-11, Hurricane Katrina, the tsunami in Asia, earthquake in Haiti and hundreds of other national and international disasters.

God calls us to be His hands reaching out to bring what peace, relief and assistance we can to those who suffer the devastating effects of disasters. Your gifts for “Disaster Relief” provide a constant resource of funds that can instantly be made available to help those in need.

About the Conference

Representing 20 million Lutherans, 120 Lutheran church leaders from around the world will gather Wednesday through Friday in Atlanta to participate in a groundbreaking conference evalutating the Lutheran church’s significance in the 21st Century.

Hosted by The Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod  (LCMS), the International Conference on Confessional Leadership will focus on the theme: “The Lutheran Church in the 21st Century: How does it look? Why does it matter?” Unprecedented in size and scope, the event will examine the Lutheran church’s ongoing need to bear a biblical and confessional witness to the world at-large. It is a historic opportunity for Lutherans.

“This conference gives the opportunity ti discuss critical theological issues facing not only Lutherans, but Christians throughout the world,” said the Rev. Dr. Albert B. Collver III, director of Church Relations for the LCMS. “The strong confessional and biblical position of the LCMS reflecting historic Lutherans, is proving to be attractive and of interest to Lutherans around the world.”

Speakers include Dr. Alister McGrath of King’s College, London; the Rev. Dr. Jobst Schoene, retired bishop of Germany’s Independent Evangelical Lutheran church; the Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, LCMS president; and the Rev. Dr. Gemechis Buba of the North American Lutheran Church. Other church leaders from North America, Europe, Latin America, Africa, and Asia also will offer theological perspectives.

Daily news briefs and updates will be available via the Witness, Mercy, Life Together blog, LCMS Twitter, LCMS Facebook, the Synod’s video blog and KFUO Radio. The conference is made possible by a grant from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.

Matthew 21:23-46

The Authority of Jesus Challenged

(23) And when he entered the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came up to him as he was teaching, and said, “By what authority are you doing these things, and who gave you this authority?” (24) Jesus answered them, “I also will ask you one question, and if you tell me the answer, then I also will tell you by what authority I do these things. (25) The baptism of John, from where did it come? From heaven or from man?” And they discussed it among themselves, saying, “If we say, ‘From heaven,’ he will say to us, ‘Why then did you not believe him?’ (26) But if we say, ‘From man,’ we are afraid of the crowd, for they all hold that John was a prophet.” (27) So they answered Jesus, “We do not know.” And he said to them, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things.

The Parable of the Two Sons

(28) “What do you think? A man had two sons. And he went to the first and said, ‘Son, go and work in the vineyard today.’ (29) And he answered, ‘I will not,’ but afterward he changed his mind and went. (30) And he went to the other son and said the same. And he answered, ‘I go, sir,’ but did not go. (31) Which of the two did the will of his father?” They said, “The first.” Jesus said to them, “Truly, I say to you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes go into the kingdom of God before you. (32) For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes believed him. And even when you saw it, you did not afterward change your minds and believe him.

The Parable of the Tenants

(33) “Hear another parable. There was a master of a house who planted a vineyard and put a fence around it and dug a winepress in it and built a tower and leased it to tenants, and went into another country. (34) When the season for fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the tenants to get his fruit. (35) And the tenants took his servants and beat one, killed another, and stoned another. (36) Again he sent other servants, more than the first. And they did the same to them. (37) Finally he sent his son to them, saying, ‘They will respect my son.’ (38) But when the tenants saw the son, they said to themselves, ‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him and have his inheritance.’ (39) And they took him and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. (40) When therefore the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?” (41) They said to him, “He will put those wretches to a miserable death and let out the vineyard to other tenants who will give him the fruits in their seasons.”

(42) Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures:

“‘The stone that the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone;
this was the Lord’s doing,
and it is marvelous in our eyes’?

(43) Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people producing its fruits. (44) And the one who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; and when it falls on anyone, it will crush him.”

(45) When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables, they perceived that he was speaking about them. (46) And although they were seeking to arrest him, they feared the crowds, because they held him to be a prophet.
