Ladies & gentlemen, I’ve had a few ideas. First off, I’d like you to consider whether pandemic poetry could be a service you offer to others. If so, you may want in on this project: a bunch of Lutheran poets working to put together a book of original poetry to publish here & possibly even a book on Amazon.
My public service announcement for today: Find all those books you’ve borrowed from your friends, family, and congregational library. READ THEM! 🙂 Then put them in their own pile for the moment when you can finally return them.
Rev. Steve Andrews, a Lutheran homeschooling dad, has started two new family study podcasts to help families as they gather around God’s Word. Yay!
With a title like that, I feel like I should wax on about how I’d define it, but, nope, that’s not what this post will be. Rather, I’m curious what you think about the article, “It’s Time for Conservatives to Stop Being Content with JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis.”
Today I get to share a reminder and update about a great resource my own family uses: Hymns for Small Lutheran Hands. There’s a new link for volume 4: Lent and Holy Week. And, even if you’ve downloaded it before, you might want to do so again, because they have some updated fingerings which should make things a bit easier for beginners. 🙂
How did I not know about St. Patrick’s Confession?! Why isn’t this required reading in Lutheran schools and Sunday schools?! I strongly encourage you to read it. Twice. Once as a Christian, hearing from a brother in the past. (He lived around 386 AD to 461 AD.) Then read it again as a Christian writer, who could tremble to pen God’s truth yet hope to in service toward others. Outstanding. It’s online here.
I suspect this is yet another example of how a confession may be of man but it is of God also.
And now I’ll get back to my reading it. 🙂
Stay safe! Christ’s peace be yours!
