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.

Today’s post is an interview with Lutheran author and economist, Ray Keating, who is well-known for his Pastor Stephen Grant series.

Here is a real find for you: Lutheran Pastor Philip J Rigdon has two novels out (Under the Bridge to the Seeds of Light and its sequel Lewis Warner Finds the Doom Prophet, Under the Bridge Part II). AND, he has put together a study guide/curriculum for teaching reading and writing for it to middle and high school students! Free resource and Lutheran novels?! LOVE IT! For more details, see his guest post below:
Today I’d like to highlight Lutheran Press. As their website states, “Lutheran Press publishes selected works of Martin Luther in a low-cost, easy-to-read format. Its primary purpose is to expose the modern church to the thoughts and writings of Martin Luther which remain relatively unknown.”
LCMS Pastor Christopher Matthis has kindly offered a copy of his latest book, In the Shadow of the Cross: Sermons for Lent and Holy Week, for a Christmas giveaway through this blog. Woo hoo!
