The Magazine of The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America


Point & click

A collaboration between the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago and the ELCA brings users an attractive, easy-to-use site. It’s a true multimedia experience combining text, photos, audio and video that both pique and satisfy interest in theologian Joseph Sittler, whose centenary was celebrated last year.

Leave it to the U.N. to develop an edge-of-your-seat action game that isn’t violent. In the U.N. World Food Programme “Food Force” game, the point is to feed hungry people as efficiently as possible. Players are challenged with six tasks that hone their skills at flying, driving a U.N. truck, dropping airlifts of food and negotiating with rebels. The most tech-savvy youth will be impressed with the sharp graphics and fast pace, while parents and teachers will appreciate the multicultural cast of characters and the integrated learning moments. Available for both PC and Macintosh. Well-worth the long download time.

A new series from the ELCA, this site offers downloadable study guides based around the lectionary. Starting on Sept. 11, ELCA pastors John and Robin McCullough-Bade lead users through Sunday’s lectionary with quotes, questions and prayer. Users are encouraged to covenant with another to complete a six-week study. (Downloads require the free Adobe Acrobat Reader, available at www.adobe.com.)
