The Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison, president of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, sends Epiphany blessings in a video message to the church. Harrison encourages the church to focus on loving and supporting its pastors and their families. “It’s not easy preaching the Gospel in this wretched world,” Harrison says in the video. He also encourages the church to study Baptism in advance of this summer’s 65th Regular Convention, whose theme is “Baptized For This Moment” from Acts 2:38-39. “Blessed Epiphany. You’re baptized,” Harrison says in the video. “The Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who grabbed you by the neck and made you His own, will bless and keep you. In the name of Jesus. Amen.”
