Re: Orthodoxy in the Holy Tradition state of GEORGIA, USA
A few years ago some Confessional Lutherans got together and made a
10-minute video that explains the "hows," "whats," and "whys" of the
Lutheran Church. Our pastor bought burnable copies of that video and
then subscribed to a service that gives the names and addresses of
everyone who moves to the local area. We sent out members of the
congregation to deliver the video, some pamphlets on what the Lutheran
Church is, and a treat (brownies, cookies, etc.). The idea is to drop
the gifts off, let them know who you are and that you just want to say
"hi," and "welcome," and then leave. Don't proselytize. Just plant
the seed. We've had many people visit our church as a result of that
