Somehow I missed this when it came out. (Here’s hoping that means I’m less addicted to the Internet!) Rev. Andrew Richard, the same man who’s putting together the Overview of New Testament Greek Syntax mentioned here, has a Lutheran approach to outreach article/paper/piece that might interest you. 🙂
I’m updating my Christian poetry page! I already mentioned the latest poetry book that got my attention, The Soul in Paraphrase: A Treasury of Classical Devotional Poems, but now I get to tell you about even more.
I’ll try not to sell ya’ on too much this season or any other, but I read the December issue of the Lutheran Witness and was really pleased with it. Know a Lutheran who’d like a gift that keeps on giving? The Lutheran Witness and Portals of Prayer aren’t just for church tables in the narthex, you know. 🙂
I wasn’t late posting about 2018 Advent Resources, although I did mean to blog today’s titles sooner. This year I thought I’d try to tackle some additional devotional reading, and the two titles are The Soul in Paraphrase: A Treasury of Classic Devotional Poems, edited by Leland Ryken, and With My Own Eyes, a third-person retelling of the Gospels by none other than Lutheran bishop extraordinaire Bo Giertz, translated by LCMS Rev. Bror Erickson!
As of this point, I’m afraid we are not all experts on New Testament Greek. But it doesn’t have to stay that way!!! 🙂 Maybe I jest a little, but Rev. Andy Richard has been teaching a New Testament Greek class and is putting together a reference guide, Overview of New Testament Greek Syntax.
I’m a bit behind posting this due to my unexpected hiatus, but here you go: an example of a super simple Lutheran Christmas program for a small group of kids. I put it together for our own little group, and you’ll see it’s more “put together” than written by me. 🙂 So, come on, folks! Let’s get the Word of God into the mouths of children! And, if you don’t have something, choose goodies for Christmas children’s programs from all the good stuff already graciously given to us! (I like to use the ESV version.)
