A week off

While I didn’t exactly mean to take a week off, it sure looks like things are headed in that direction. 🙂 I’ve started playing piano for church and I just have too much music to learn to have much free time.

Poetry books for Christmas

Yep, time for one of my period posts about how Lutherans ought to read more poetry. Mostly I want to remind you that Lutheran poetry is INCREASINGLY AVAILABLE! Buy poetry books for Christmas, especially Lutheran poetry books!

I know you may not have always liked the poetry taught in school, or the poetry you were forced to write in school, but poetry is language of the soul, folks. SIX ENTIRE BOOKS of the Bible are poetry: Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, and Lamentations. It’s NOT A PASSING CRAZE!
