Thank you, Lord, for Lutheran writers. Thank you for Lutheran readers who can suggest books I hadn’t heard of! Good and Bad Ways to Think about Religion and Politicsmay be just what I need! Also, God bless Dr. Pless, who writes some of the best handouts & study guides out there! 🙂
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!
Bryan Wolfmueller has done it again and somehow I almost missed it! (Thanks, Carmen, for the head’s up. This is GREAT!) Once again Rev. Wolfmueller has put together a calendar and he has given 2021 the theme, “A Year of Hope.” Perfect!
Today I thought I’d share some free Advent music for your enjoyment. 🙂 They’re playlists on Youtube, and I haven’t checked to see whether Alexa (or other media) can play them, but here they are for your enjoyment.
Have you heard of Everbook? It’s an organization method that Rev. Bryan Wolfmueller is perfecting. I thought I’d try to type out a few models, both to explain to you how it works, and to help him show others how accessible and flexible the system is. 🙂 (Here are two introductory videos, one from Bryan Wolfmueller and another from Jonathan Fisk. As for me, I’ll stick with written words.)
Hey, did you see that CPH has digital bonus Sunday school materials up for 14 lessons of Unit 4, Enduring Faith Sunday School Curriculum? Our church is hoping to start back up with Sunday school and Bible study, but I know we’ve had some hesitation due to so many concerns. Thanks to CPH for the resources they’re sharing! I think it says a lot.
