New Testament Psalms

I’ve had an idea–and I’m sharing that idea, although I’m not entirely sure whether it’s a possible project. I wonder if people could glean images and metaphors from the New Testament and incorporate them into a new sort of devotional psalter, like New Testament Psalms. Replacing the Book of Psalms? No!!!!! Making a part II that could, in any way, equal the authority, strengths, and beauties of the Book of Psalms?? No!

A Defense Against Evolution

Guess what: Another Lutheran book has been released! It’s A Defense Against Evolution by Rev. Lincoln Winter, whom you may know from his catechetical website, Teach These Things, or his blog, Musings of a Country Parson. The topic, of course, is a very relevant one.

More Lent Resources for 2018

Lent is not a season of only Law. Lent is a time of both Law and Gospel. So, if you have already failed a Lenten discipline, I have good news for you. Jesus became Man, taking on our very flesh, to live the life we can’t and to die the death we have earned. To God, you are still wet with the waters of holy Baptism and you drip with the righteousness that only our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ came give–or earn. In fact, the Holy Spirit grants you flowing rivers of living water. And, guess what? There are more Lent resources for 2018 to help immerse you in the gifts God has already given you.

Serial Multitasking

A conference speaker once talked about how multitasking doesn’t really work. She argued that multitasking really means that we’re distracted no matter what task is at hand. Yeah, I have six children, nine and under. I cannot not multitask. So, I told myself, I’ll just focus on whatever is at hand. I’ll serial task. Still, that’s pretty much resulted in serial multitasking.

Law & Gospel for Writers-Redeeming

The series goes on with Part V. Today’s post is hinged more on the Gospel: redeeming!

I’m a little torn how long to let this series run. Any suggestions? I know I have readers, but you lot sure can be quiet. 😉 I have other announcements building up, so next week the series may not run consecutive days.

Law & Gospel for Writers, Part IV-Freedom

Our next installment in our Law & Gospel for Writers series will look at more of the vocation-y side of things. In Part II, we looked at binding. Today, Part IV will look into its opposite: freedom.

Law & Gospel for Writers, Part III Written

Welcome again to our series on Law & Gospel for Writers (See Part I and Part II). Today we’re going to stray just a little. After distinctions about the Law, we’re going to look at a distinction of sorts about the Gospel. Don’t worry: we’ll look at what is written in Scripture. Though, please, correct me if I’m wrong! 🙂 Continue reading

Law & Gospel for Writers, Part II-Binding

Yesterday, in my new series, Law & Gospel for Writers, I introduced a few distinctions about the Law and asked whether you are thinking in terms of enough. Today, in Part II, a central concept will be binding. Are you binding yourself under rules? Are you sometimes tempted to think that being bound is actually better, more productive, or more successful?

Law & Gospel for Writers, Part I

Hello! Today I’m starting Day 1 of my first series: Law & Gospel for Writers. In this, I hope to explore elements of Law & Gospel discourse, of course, but it will focus on writers, writing, and common characteristics of writer’s life. Now, each post may not be as polished as I’d hoped but I hope that together we can come up with a helpful little course that maybe I can offer as an email course sometime. In part these are things it’s just good and helpful to hear. Just maybe it can be a more focused “consolation of the brethren” among fellow writers.

If I say something you disagree with, please do let me know.
