An article appeared recently in the Concordia Theological Quarterly titled "Needed: A Paradigm Shift in Missouri's Mission Outlook" by LC-MS Chaplain John C. Wohlrabe Jr., Commander, Chaplain Corps, United States Navy.Reading through his article I was quickly struck by the relevance of it to what is presented above.
Commander Wohlrabe attended an annual Lutheran chaplains conference in 1992.Excerpts from his article are offered here.
He writes: "Such conferences are conducted annually as a joint endeavor between the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.Sponsorship of these conferences alternates between the two church bodies.

Commander Wohlrabe addresses numerous important issues here, and he provides much pertinent information.His reactions and conclusions are cerainly appropriate.More on the topic, Military Chaplaincy, will appear in a future column, but I think readers will readily see the connection with the previous five-part article.
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.John 8:32
