Lutheran Woman’s Quarterly
Winter 2017 "Trust Issues"
Each issue of the Lutheran Woman’s Quarterly is a trust issue. The LWQ staff begins its work with a blank slate (actually, a poster tacked to a wall) and, by the power of the Holy Spirit, we pray each issue into existence.
The Lord God hears those prayers. We trust Him to guide the magazine’s production from start to finish. He does!
You provide the rest. Emails arrive in my inbox from people around the globe, offering to submit Bible studies, devotions, feature articles, and news stories. Expert doctrinal review refines each page. The result is an intricately woven and sensitively designed resource at your fingertips that clearly conveys the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
It doesn’t stop there. You have the opportunity to reach out to others by sharing the LWQ and the Good News with others. The Quarterly’s motto sums it perfectly: Knowing Christ and Making Him Known.* This is His magazine; make no doubt. This is also your magazine: the magazine for, by, and about you — each Lutheran woman. Among these pages may your spiritual needs be met, may your heart cries be heard, and may you know that you do not struggle alone.
Above all, may you trust how deeply you are loved by the Babe of Bethlehem whose blood was shed for you, who calls you as His own child, and in whom you can trust wholeheartedly to walk beside you through the pages of your life.
