          Called to
                                   and Serve
            Our Neighbors

                          We encourage you to plant
                       these seeds as a reminder of the
                          opportunity we have as LSA
                     of nurturing, harvesting, and sharing
                       our blessings with our neighbors.
                      The seed packets were generously
                         donated by Lake Valley Seed,
                              Boulder, Colorado.

Annual Report 2008
For the whole law is summed up in a single commandment,
“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” – Galatians 5:14
                                … we belong in other people’s lives … we are
                                  loved, lovable and capable of loving …
                                                               – Fred Rogers
Called to
  Our Neighbors
                                                     and Serve

Perhaps the most important thing about “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood,” the television program that endeared itself
to generations of children and adults, was the concept of neighbor and the importance of community. Everyone was
included. Everyone’s opinions mattered. Everyone was special. Fred Rogers believed that “Something we all need in
order to feel the fullness of life: It’s not only a sense that we belong on our planet, but also that we belong in other
people’s lives—that we are loved, lovable, and capable of loving.”

Mr. Rogers designed a make-believe neighborhood to educate and entertain children. Lutheran Services in America – the
Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, The Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod and their nearly 300 health and human
services organizations – strives day after day to bring Christ’s love and the living out of Lutheran Christian values to our
oh-so-real neighborhoods across the country and many parts of the world.

During the past year, the LSA alliance engaged in discernment about the focus of our work together for the next decade.
As we developed the new ends toward which we will mobilize, at the heart of the conversation was unwavering clarity
that we must answer God’s call to love and serve our neighbors in new ways.

Even in challenging times, Lutheran social ministry organizations see opportunity and hope. That hope is founded
on the sure love of God and we are called to share that love and that hope with others – something we can do more
powerfully together than alone. A growing sense of camaraderie, tangible manifestations of community and a shared
will to embrace and shape the future generate momentum and opportunity. There is a desire to model and create a
movement of hope and grace toward a society that values generosity, inclusion, justice and mutual care.

We are grateful to all those who contributed their glimpses of a future full of hope in the process of shaping our work
for the next decade. They clearly expressed a vision of LSA’s own neighborhood summed up by one of our Board

God has already welcomed everyone to the
neighborhood. We just decided to love each other.
