Not many people in the Lutheran family on the African continent and across the world would have been so unfortunate not to have met Professor Dr Gunther Wittenberg. Whoever came across him would be influenced one way or the other.

Having been salted by the abundant grace of his Redeemer Jesus Christ, he salted so many in the church and outside of it, from the lowest to the highest in power or education.

Indeed his contribution to better understand and use the message of Scripture from the lecture, pulpit, schools and house to the streets has been documented and has salted many more still.

On behalf of the LUCSA and its member churches listed below, we convey to his dear family and church the consolation coming from the Oculi epistle reading,

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trouble, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God”., 2 Cor 1:3-4.
