Theological board — is opportunity for special report

by John Beem (Treasurer, WordAlone Network)

September 19, 2003

Several of our members have asked for the names of special programs within the ministry of WordAlone Network (WA) that they could support financially. The WA board has lifted up the Theological Advisory Board (TAB) as a special support opportunity for members and friends.

The TAB is a vital resource for our ministry. It is composed of 20 national and international, confessional, Lutheran theologians. They are writing important statements and giving theological guidance to WA. These theologians are donating their time, but the cost of food, travel, and, in some instances, lodging needs to be covered for their meetings.

If you wish to designate a donation for the TAB, make your check payable to “WordAlone Network” and indicate on the memo line that it is for the TAB.

Since WA is operating on a very austere budget, the WA Board appreciates your efforts to maintain your regular donations to the WA ministry. Receipts are down and have been in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The WA Board thanks you for your continued support and personal involvement in our common efforts to offer important reform initiatives and to renew the ELCA.
