Higher Things - A True Positive for the Synod
I was the recipient the other day of a demo DVD from Higher Things, an organization that serves high school and college-aged youth in the Lutheran church. Higher Things and their magazine (first rate!) were familiar to me already, but I have to commend the producers of the DVD. They did a great job of presenting this absolute gem of an organization. My daughter was pleased to go to their summer conference last year in Colorado and loved every minute of it, especially the worship. In a day when so many see confessional Lutherans as capable of only criticizing and condemning, this positive blessing goes unnoticed by the critics, or so it appears. But they should be commended highly for their tireless work with the Lutheran youth of today. They are making a difference and I only wish that the powers that be were more supportive of their efforts. If you are interested in learning more, their web site can be found here.
