Lutherans worldwide are invited to attend a free June 5 virtual conference planned by the Lutheran World Federation to strengthen congregational social service efforts. For "Stand up and walk," based on Jesus' healing of a man who was paralyzed (Mark 2:9-12), about 500 pastors, diaconal workers and lay leaders are expected to talk with each other online about trends in responding to human needs. Conference languages will be in English, Spanish, French and Indonesian. For more information or to register as a group or individual, visit http://lwfvirtualconference.org.
