Following the success of the August 2020 issue of the Lutheran Theological Journal (LTJ) on what a post-pandemic church may look like, this year the journal’s editorial team has produced another themed edition – this time on cross-cultural ministry and church life in Australia and New Zealand.

This edition features 24 opinion pieces by church workers from Australia and New Zealand, who responded to the call for contributions on the overarching theme ‘Developing a multicultural mindset for the LCANZ – from a European migrant church to … ’

The personal reflections unearth an eagerness to address the opportunities and challenges arising from the changing face of Lutheran churches, schools and other agencies across Australasia.

This issue is of relevance to the wider church and demonstrates that LTJ continues to serve the LCANZ by offering a space in which its workers can present a range of views that generate engagement with one another in respectful dialogue.
