Word and Work: Parents with Prodigals

In Word and Work: An Intersection, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis President Dr. Dale A. Meyer interviews Paula Isakson about her organization, “Faith Family Reunion,” which provides encouragement and provides resources for parents who raised their children in the Lutheran church but whose children have left the church and their faith (prodigals).

Later in the program, Seminary Professor Dr. David Schmitt and Herrmann break down the sermon in a “Preacher’s Studio” segment.
