From the Fall 2011 Daystar Journal:
The fall Issue of the Daystar Journal is built around the theme of the “Prophetic Ministry and Promising Tradition.” Coming out of Lutheran church bodies that emphasized the “pastoral” ministry, a “prophetic” ministry that addressed both church and society was scarce and seldom welcomed. Yet, current problems in the church (in this case, the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod) and in our society, cry out for a word reflecting the message of the prophets of old.
While the Hebrew prophets condemned the attitudes and actions of their contemporaries, they did so out of concern for the destruction that was coming soon. Calling for a change of heart and actions they also promised a restoration flowing out of the wonderful grace and mercy of God. Coming out of the “Promising Tradition” the Daystar community anchors its hope in the Gospel of Christ and in that hope finds the courage to look at the challenges ahead.
