Want to know what makes a great Reformation confession? A new catechism translation! Now, I know, I know, too many word changes messes up memory work and causes unnecessary confusion. I hear you. I agree. BUT yay, yay, yay for the Evangelical Lutheran Church of England for presenting the world with a Small Catechism available for free use!
I am so torn about whether the illustrations in children’s books need to have an overarching story in and of themselves or not. SO TORN!
With the actual Reformation Anniversary Day approaching, there are a LOT of Reformation resources and books coming out. Today I get to mention a neat resource from Northwestern Publishing House, the Lutheran publishing house of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS): 365 Luther Quotes, one a day!
How did I miss knowing this release date?! Ok, one day late, at least this way I can take someone else’s post about it! 🙂 Yesterday, a new Lutheran book hit the market, written by Gene Veith and Trevor Sutton: Authentic Christianity: How Lutheran Theology Speaks to a Postmodern World.
While I pray for rain in other parts of this country, we’ve had a lot of it around here. So much that mushrooms are popping up everywhere in a way I haven’t seen in the seven years I’ve lived here. 🙂 My dad made sure to point out the fairy rings to my girls.
I got a press release from Kloria Publishing about Kloria’s two new Reformation books: A Mighty Fortress is Our God and Lord, Keep Us Steadfast in Your Word. I’ve written about Kloria and their previous release, God’s Own Child, I Gladly Say It, and I’m thrilled to say the excerpts of these illustrated hymn texts look just as good!
After my post looking for a good Lutheran children’s book dealing with small sibling loss, I got my hands on just that! A great big thanks to the Lutherans at According to Your Word for writing and selling it! (You may be familiar with them for their free resources for catechism, worship, and the liturgy). Titled My Brother Lives with Jesus by Anna & Samuel Gullixson, I review it below.
You know what’s scarier than looking back through your email inbox? Looking back through your neglected blog drafts. Yikes!
Nooks and crannies, folks. Dark closets. Crumpled notes. <shiver>
This time I’m just going to look away and wish you well. I hope to type up two reviews for you tomorrow! 🙂
Hello! Today I’m quoting something from a health program I’m participating in (Omada). Here’s hoping it doesn’t break copyright! This post is purely for educational purposes! 🙂 Anyway, before you read the paragraph, read just this little bit: “[S]cience has shown that even a little bit of writing helps you gain clarity, reduce stress, and deal with challenges more effectively.”
