Blowin in the Wind

The answer, my friend, is blowin in the wind. Seriously. You just have to understand the sentence–and the question!–differently.

The post gets better. Trust me.

Eclipse Bible Study

Temporary-but-timely* freebie now available: The Great American Eclipse Bible Study. From what I gather, people from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, created ConcordiaTheology.org as a forum for conversation between theological perspectives and to help cultivate “a vigorous life of the mind in service to the Gospel.”

The Fear of the Lord

I vividly remember the first time I read, “I should fear, love, and trust in the Lord” from Luther’s Small Catechism. My little heart started to pound. I had a moment of panic, wondered whether I’d mis-learned about God! “Fear?” What exact is the fear of the Lord? And, what’s the right way to fear the Lord?

Drink Deeply

I don’t know many of the women who write Bible studies for CPH these days. I’m not sure why. It could be connected to them often being pastors’ wives spread out all over the country! Anyway, I’ve met Deb Burma briefly. She lead a retreat for the Oklahoma District Pastors’ Wives, where we had some pleasant chats. She has written a number of other books since then, and now she has another book coming out! Sip, Savor, and Drink Deeply: Receive God’s Overflowing Gifts  is available for preordering.

The Kingdoms of Israel

This weekend I was able to attend the  22nd Annual Lutheran Lecture Series at Grace Lutheran (Wichita) and heard Rev. Brian Kachelmeier teach about Christ in the Old Testament. It was great and got me thinking. We should have a Bible study on the kingdoms of Israel!

Daily Bread

My other thought Sunday was about daily bread. Maybe I haven’t mentioned this here yet, but I’m kind of into it. Eating and drinking, yes, cooking and preparing, yes, but also the concept and importance of it as a gift from God. And, it’s daily! That’s significant, yet too often overlooked or underappreciated. Anyway, you know how the Israelites could have no leftovers from the Passover? It’s a demonstration of a day’s bread, built on the promise that God must Himself provide for the future meals!!

Crafts and Crafted for Free Resource Page!

I’ve finally got it: a resource page people should add to their blog-rolls. “Crafts and Crafted-for-Free Resources” is a free resource page listing free Lutheran Bible studies, devotions, coloring pages, books, etc., and listing websites, Facebook pages, and Etsy shops with Lutheran owners. The theme is reflected in the title: Crafts and Crafted-for-Free Resources. 🙂

Barren Beginnings, Part 3

I’ve been sitting on this last of three sessions for the Bible study, “Barren Beginnings” for a few days. I’m just not sure about it yet, so I would especially welcome your comments or suggestions on writing or content. Am I stating when I ought to be leading with questions? Is it too long, being half a page longer than the other two sessions? Is it less friendly to a broad audience? The previous parts are here and here.

And, once it’s in semi-final form, I’ll post it somewhere so you can download and print it for free use—probably on a new resource page! 🙂
