Rev. Robert Greene
The Missouri Synod pastor who was President of Lutheran Social Service of Texas while I chaired the board died last weekend. He will be buried this next weekend north of Austin.
Those were days when the LC-MS enjoyed better relations with the predecessor bodies of the ELCA. Today contact between the synods is quite limited.
Then the agency, now known as Upbring, offered a wide array of services. Today the agency focuses on the needs of children.
Upbring has a center for unaccompanied migrant youth in McAllen and is now preparing to open a second center there.
Neil Norquest also served on the board during those days.
