a very welcomed pastor

a very welcomed pastor

A couple of years ago, while proofreading, I ran across this little story about Wyneken, the second president of the Synod, and it made my heart a little happy: “When the settlers, who had already gotten to know him, saw him approaching from afar, they greeted him joyfully, congre­gated about him, and listened desirously to his comprehensible, heartfelt, lively sermon. Time permitting, several hours were also dedicated to conversation. He knew how to talk brilliantly, to old and young, men and women, about cows and pigs, about corn and potatoes, and yet always knew how to spice up his language. He associated with the people in the most simple and jovial manner, however, always remaining the pastor.” That kind of . . . Read All

Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand

“After this Jesus went away to the other side of the Sea of Galilee, which is the Sea of Tiberias. And a large crowd was following him, because they saw the signs that he was doing on the sick. Jesus went up on the mountain, and there he sat down with his disciples. Now the Passover, the feast of the Jews, was at hand. Lifting up his eyes, then, and seeing that a large crowd was coming toward him, Jesus said to Philip, “Where are we to buy bread, so that these people may eat?” He said this to test him, for he himself knew what he would do. Philip answered him, “Two hundred denarii would not buy enough bread. . . Read All

In Christ Alone is not in alone in being rejected…

In his 1934 book, The Kingdom of God in America, H. Richard Niebuhr depicted the creed of liberal Protestant theology, which was called “modernism” in those days, in these famous words: “A God without wrath brought man without sin into a kingdom without judgment through the ministrations of a Christ without a cross.” Niebuhr was no fundamentalist, but he knew what he was talking about. So did Dietrich Bonhoeffer when he named the kind of mainline religion he encountered in 1930s America: Protestantismus ohne Reformation, “Protestantism without the Reformation.” With these words, Timothy George points us to a hymn rejected by the Presbyterian Church . . .

Developing a Rich Prayer Life

Developing a Rich Prayer Life

When people have confided in me that they think their prayers are inadequate, I often suggest a good prayer book. This is not a crutch, I tell them, but a tool. They are good prayers not only in themselves, but they can provide a framework for our own prayers. When we are praying these written or memorized prayers, we often can’t help but think of other needs as well, and that becomes part of our prayer, spoken or not.

Commemoration of Zechariah and Elizabeth

Commemoration of Zechariah and Elizabeth

Today we remember and give thanks for Zechariah and Elizabeth.  Zachariah and Elizabeth were  “righteous before God, living blamelessly according to all the commandments and regulations of the Lord” (Lk 1:6). Zechariah, a priest in the Jerusalem temple, was greeted by the angel Gabriel who announced that Zechariah and Elizabeth would become parents of a son. Initially Zechariah did not believe Gabriel’s announcement because of their old age. For his disbelieve, Zechariah became unable to speak. . . . Read All
