    Hi. I noticed that the Logos Lutheran blog has been dormant for a few years. What happened to it? Is there no Lutheran representation on your staff?

    • Matthew Boffey says:

      Hi Delwyn, yes the Lutheran blog is currently inactive, and there or no plans to continue it at the moment, although it remains a possibility. There is still Lutheran representation on our staff, however.

      Best,
