Cary Schwarz

I know there are “big name” Lutherans. I’m not aiming to touch them or that topic here. Instead, I’m gunna bring up an awesomely cool (to me) Lutheran (!): Cary Schwarz.

Movie Credits

Have I mentioned my dad’s sage advice about movie credits? It was an early life lesson for me. My family always waited until the very end of the movie to honor all the names in the movie credits.

Free Marriage Booklet

I love free resources, and even more I love seeing the Church in action, sharing the merciful love of the Gospel as well as precious wisdom along the way. Want a free marriage booklet?

Time to share an idea. When I was a young pup in the topic of vocation, I thought Luther missed an important one: friendship. Now “I can see clearly now the rain has gone,” and I have an idea to share. 🙂

Firetruck

Describing the process of backing a u-haul or trainer into a driveway is awkward at best. Just like doing it. But the other day I saw a firetruck returning to its station. Two guys hopped out, each to one side, presumably to help with traffic, blind spots, and making it inside. Awkward? No. It was a thing of beauty! Smooth and precise with a priceless professional quality!
