The Brothers of John the Steadfast (aka Steadfast Lutherans) have published a new book of sermons, this time by the excellent Rev. Rolf Preus! Here is the announcement about A Year of Law & Gospel Preaching: Postil of Sermons on the One-Year Lectionary.
Ladies and gentlemen, I interrupt this week of blogging book releases to share just a little something beautiful. Last night at Ash Wednesday, two of my six children participated far more than usual. My five-year-old Michael did really well following along with the liturgy and readings. Even better, when he got lost, he was disappointed! He cared! But equally moving to me as a mother was that my newly-four-year-old Anastasia (we call her Tasy) participated in praying the litany! Now, don’t get me wrong, she said each line exactly after everyone else said it. 🙂 But the something beautiful is that our pastor allowed the time for her to do it. All of those “Have mercy”‘s melted my heart.
Want to know what I love? Lutheran writers! You know what else I love? Kids. Especially kids who read . . . and write!! Today’s post is a happy announcement that an awesome 14-year old Lutheran girl, Milena Janton, has written and published her first novel, Unicorn Ranch!
Ack! I overbooked! Today I’d better post about 2019 Lenten resources, since Ash Wednesday is just around the corner, but I also intended to promote a new book. (If you’re watching for me to announce a new book, I have several of those scheduled for next week!) Sorry! Mea culpa!
I want to thank all the Lutheran authors out there. I’ve been out of sorts since the accident, but I’ve found good comfort and some great distraction while reading your books! Thank you, thank you! Today’s review will be on Lutheran author Rachel Kovaciny‘s Cloaked (Once Upon a Western Book 1).
