Yesterday, the fourth year class of the Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, presented the 2020 class gift: Apostolic Agenda: The Epistles of the Holy Apostle Paul to Titus and Philemon, the first full work of Lutheran theologian Friedrich Balduin (1575-1627) to be available in English!

I’m happy to announce another Lutheran new release! (I’m a little late, to be honest, since I hoped to include a review right away. Alas, I haven’t managed it just quite yet.) You’ll be interested to learn that prolific Lutheran author Ray Keating shares an expansive collection of Keating essays in Behind Enemy Lines: Conservative Communiques from Left-Wing New York.
An Internet outage for most of yesterday kept me off my blog, so I’ve got nothing but excuses for you today. Oh, and an even deeper longing for the weekend!
Wishing you all peace, health, and the Lord’s Supper.
If you registered then you’ve heard. The Lutheran writers’ conference, Here I Write, has been canceled. Sad but true. BUT if you’re on Facebook you can head over to Katie Schuermann’s Facebook page Thursday, May 7th at 7:30 PM CST to hear her live, chatting about “things of a writerly nature.”
Would you be interested in a hymn to celebrate the church gathered again? Because I wrote one and my dear friend, Chris Schelp, wrote music for it. 🙂 It’s called “Come, Gathered Again.”
Today’s post is inspired and fundamentally relies on the Twenty Third Psalm. This poem is an application and transversed wording in free verse for recent circumstances. (Transversed* means situated across something.) It’s a little less based on sheep & shepherd, but I hope it will comfort you with the Word of God applied to life and these days. 🙂 Let me know what you think.
