Lutheran Quarterly

Thank You, Virgil (Bud) Thompson

On Friday, April 2026, 2024, the Lutheran Quarterly Board of Directors, Editorial Staff and friends gathered in Minneapolis, MN to honor Virgil (Bud) Thompson’s 36 years of service as Managing Editor . 

Bud was presented with a booklet of thanks from the many individuals he helped and encouraged along the way. 

Without his guidance and perseverance, LQ would not be the journal it is today.  A debt of gratitude is owed to Bud and we are so grateful for his tireless work and contribution to Lutheran Quarterly over the years.


Below are a few pictures from the dinner.
