Read Like a Lutheran

image

The start of summer is widely associated with Memorial Day, so by those standards, summer is here! And what better way to celebrate summer than by entering a summer reading program? Concordia Publishing House is sponsoring a reading program for the entire family–adults and kids alike. The title is “Read Like a Lutheran,” and they have lists of books for each age group, and your name will be entered for a prize when you reach a certain number of points! I’m already signed up, as are my kids. If you have any number of CPH books around your house, you may already have enough to attain your goal. Arch books for the kids, for example, or (ahem) Our Faith From A to Z all count. As for adults, Grace Alone is on the list! Check your church library or swap books with a friend if you’re looking to expand your repertoire. What a great opportunity to curl up with some books! Happy reading!

Grab a cup of tea, get comfortable, and open the pages of Ruth Meyer’s book, Grace Alone. This is contemporary Christian fiction at its finest. The characters are the people you meet in your daily walk: your family, friends, neighbors, the people in your worship community. People who are flawed, carry baggage, and in need of God’s grace. Take a trip to Mapleport, Michigan, and see how Meyer weaves a tale that will stay with you long after you finish reading.

-Janice Wendorf; 16th president of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League and avid reader
