Remembering Wilhelm Löhe

Wilhelm Loehe.jpg

Johann Konrad Wilhelm Löhe (or Loehe) was a German Lutheran pastor who supported mission efforts in America. (He died January 2, 1872, and is remembered on January 2.) He not only raised funds and sent missionaries, he also published many materials on Christian education, prayer and worship, which were a great influence on the framers of the Common Service (which later led to the development of The Common Service Book of the Lutheran Church.)
