New Lutheran Organization
I’m pleased to inform you about the beginning of a new Lutheran organization: Doxology. They are just getting the organization off the ground, but from the information on their web site, this organization would appear to be one that will provide many good things. For too many years, I have watched Lutheran pastors struggle with their own personal problems, trapped behind walls of denial or self-deception, causing serious difficulties for colleagues and their congregations. Equally, I have been concerned by pastors who seem to think there is no place, at all, for what we can learn from the study of human psychology and hence are ill equipped to help people to whom they minister cope with legitimate mental illness and others facing the most intense of personal crises and concerns. I’m impressed by what this organization intends to do and extend to them the blessing of Almighty God, praying that He will bless their efforts and all whom they serve.
