CLARIFICATION: BIBLES SERVE AS "BEST OUTREACH TOOL" FOR LUTHERAN MEN
[Editors: Please substitute the following for the first two paragraphs
of the story previously issued under the same headline on April 13,
CHICAGO (ELCA) -- The distribution of the Holy Bible to men has
been the best "outreach tool" to date for Lutheran Men in Mission of the
Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), according to Douglas
Haugen. With that in mind, the board for Lutheran Men in Mission (LMM),
at its meeting here March 24-26, moved to distribute 5,000 Bibles to men
in the church and considered other business to support men's ministries.
The Bibles will be available at a minimal cost later this summer,
said Haugen, director of LMM, the men's organization of the ELCA. The
Bibles are called "Lutheran Men in Mission -- Master Builders
Serendipity Bible" and include more than 70 study sessions and courses
containing 20,000 study questions designed to help men to deepen their
faith life, Haugen said. The Bibles will be made available by
Serendipity House Publishers, Littleton, Colo.
