A “Lutheran Novel”?

My dad told me about an article that would interest us: “Is There Such a Thing as a “Lutheran Novel“? You know me well enough to know how I’d answer that!

Lent for Small Lutheran Hands

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. 🙂

St. Patrick’s Confession

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!

Yeast

I went to the store yesterday to get yeast. I think some therapeutic baking is in my future and I don’t want it all to be brownies and cookies. 🙂 So, while honestly I’d love to lose myself in a book for about three weeks right now, I’m going to encourage you to do something besides hide. Something that can give you a little lift.

Are great things in store?

Ladies and gentlemen, I’ll admit I’m starting to get kind of nervous. I’d hoped the Corona virus would be going away rather than obviously spreading. So I want to take a moment to ask you: Are great things in store?

Distortions

I’ve been googling various authors to double-check various things, and I stumbled on a quote from Flannery O’Connor that I’d like you to consider today on distortions.
