Learn Organ-Free Resource

In gathering for my somewhat random Lutheran free resource page, I’ve sort of sought far and wide. Finally, a thought really struck a chord! Learn organ-free resource!!! We all know there’s a growing shortage of organ-players, and I think it’s safe to say that’s in part because there are fewer and fewer organ teachers at local levels. Guess what I found?

Knowledge of Him

I’m still finding resources for my free resource page, Crafts and Crafted for Free, so here’s another one: Knowledge of Him. Their goal is to provide free, easy to use resources that encourage you in your daily walk with Christ and pursuit of the knowledge of Him. Their focus is on encouraging reading Scripture and daily prayer, but I suspect they have plans to expand and they are very open to requests and suggestions. Woo hoo! 🙂

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! 🙂

Lutheran Resource Pages

I like resources and resource pages. I like tidy lists that can serve as one stop shops. So, I’m thinking about putting together yet another page on this site, listing Lutheran resources that may or may not be writing related. By that I mean, links for free resources like Bible studies and not-free resources like Lutheran Etsy shops. Is that dumb? Am I losing sight of my focus with this page?

Barren Beginnings, Part 1

I’ve started to work on a short Bible study on barrenness, primarily looking at Old Testament figures although it has stretched a little past that. Since I’m new to writing Bible studies, I thought I’d post sections here in case anyone finds it interesting, helpful, or has comments or suggestions to make. This will be Barren Beginnings, Part 1.

Adam and Jesus

I had a great idea for today’s blog post during church and then utterly forgot it! Arg. It was about parallels between Adam and Jesus, and the ironic twist on how salvation is won through such similar means! The serpent speaks and the woman is deceived, but Christ speaks and that Word brings faith and salvation! There is the tree that tempted, and the tree stained with the blood of Christ. There is the death of Adam, and the death of Christ. It even occurred to me that there is the forbidden fruit in Eden and then the free offer, “Take. Eat. This is my body.” Adam and Jesus provide so much food for meditation! Oh! Oh! Evil by eating and then death gets swallowed!

Prelude to Postlude

I had a string of good writing days. Sadly, that stopped. Oh well, here’s another neat Lenten resource. It’s nothing to give up as a discipline. Rather, it’s something to add. I think it’s an excellent idea, especially for writers and word people like us. So, with little more prelude . . .
