The new year is a time for resolutions and fresh starts. For the January cover story, we’d like to know what things your congregation needs to clean out of the closet — literally and figuratively. Old hymnals or old attitudes? Felt boards or outdated programs? What should stay or go in the new year? Our homes and churches can both benefit from pitching what we may be hoarding. Send your opinions, insight and stories (in 300 words or less, by Oct. 16) to email@example.com or write to The Lutheran, 8765 W. Higgins Rd., Chicago, IL 60631.
