One Generation…

…I was going to go through and clean up this paper, but I never can find the time. So I’m posting it, blemishes and all. It is what I delivered at the Making the Case Conference in Collinsville last month: Making the Case for Classical Christian Hymnody “Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable.” Psalm 145:3.  On this I suspect Christians of every stripe could agree. The Lord is great and the Lord is greatly to be praised. But we might see the cleft that has developed in the Church if we venture to the next verses: “One generation shall commend your works to another and shall declare your mighty acts. On the. . .

Rev. Klemet Preus Called Home to Heaven, by Pr. Rossow

Rev. Klemet Preus Called Home to Heaven, by Pr. Rossow

The brotherhood of our Lord’s shepherds has lost a beloved comrade. Rev. Klemet Preus died in the Lord today. He will be greatly missed by those of us still waiting for Jesus to take us home to heaven. In the meantime we shall keep our feet to the fire and use judiciously the staff the Lord has given us to tend the flock with the strictest words of the law and the sweetest words of the Gospel, as Klemet showed us how. BJS owes a debt to Klemet. When we were nothing more than a blip in the internet cyberspace he and Mollie Ziegler Hemingway put us on the intraweb map by writing for us for the first couple of . . .

Gamaliel’s Council

When they heard this, they were enraged and wanted to kill them. But a Pharisee in the council named Gamaliel, a teacher of the law held in honor by all the people, stood up and gave orders to put the men outside for a little while. And he said to them, “Men of Israel, take care what you are about to do with these men. For before these days Theudas rose up, claiming to be somebody, and a number of men, about four hundred, joined him. He was killed, and all who followed him were dispersed and came to nothing. After him Judas the Galilean rose up in the days of the census and drew away some of the people . . . Read All

Making the rounds. . . but it is worth seeing again

Good ole Luther is always up for a provocative quote to stir things up… Funny, though, how hard it is in practicality.  We preachers want to be loved more than just about anything else.  So when we preach the Law we preach it with kid gloves.  I admit it.  I am guilty of the same. God save us from ourselves (preachers) so that we can preach the whole counsel of God without apology. Something to think about when you sit down to write out your Sunday medication meditation.. . .

The holy joy of faith. . .

The holy joy of faith. . .

Sermon for Pentecost 4, Proper 9A, preached on Sunday, July 6, 2014.     If being a Christian makes you groan, something is wrong. We groan under the weight of burdens, of demands laid on us, of duties we must fulfill.  Jesus insists that He has not come to lay a burden on us. Rather, He has come to bear the full weight of the hard yoke Himself.  His yoke on us is easy, His burden on us is light.  To be sure, faith is a complication of our daily lives.  Refusing to allow sinful desire to reign in us is not the path of least resistence.  That we heard from St. Paul in the Epistle.  But faith is not a. . .
