Through the ELCA, St. Philip’s supports the ministries of Jim and Carol Sack in Japan. Jim teaches at Japan Lutheran College and Japan Theological Seminary and prepares students to do pastoral counseling. Carol’s ministry, Lyra Precaria, brings comfort through harp and vocal music to people who are dying.
Jim and Carol visit St. Philip’s when they are in Minnesota. Their newsletters are posted on the Global Missions bulletin board near the Nursery and published in The Friend.
