Ok. It’s time to admit that I don’t particularly care for getting too innovative with punctuation. I’m joyfully Lutheran and there is joy in being fully Lutheran. Joy:fully Lutheran? Ok. I get it. But rather than linger too long on punctuation, that lovely clarifier of so much, I’ll jump to reviewing Why Am I Joy:Fully Lutheran? Instruction, Meditation, and Prayers on Luther’s Small Catechism instead. 🙂

It’s my blog and I can elaborate if I want to. 😉 Yesterday I suggested that writing can be the opposite of escapism, so I thought I’d explore that a little more today.
Do you incorporate Luther’s Small Catechism into your daily devotional time? It’s a great thing to do and there are so many ways to do it! Or maybe you maintain a shelf of devotional books to rotate through over the years. Even then, here’s another resource, newly released, you can add to your household: Beauty and Catechesis.
I have another two drafts I’m working on. I don’t want to talk too much about it publicly, but let me know if you’d like to give me any behind-the-scene advice on it. It’s another children’s book, theological in nature, but right now I’m facing what I call the Child Conundrum.
Hello, everybody. I’ve been gathering free Lutheran resources for my “Crafts and Crafted-for-Free” resource page, and I thought I’d bring you up to speed. The latest add is a set of free PDFs titled Kids in the Divine Service. They were put together by Rev. Christopher Thoma (who was a DCE before becoming an LCMS pastor) and the LCMS Commission on Worship (hm, perhaps former commission on worship).
Another idea to share. Older educational practices would use poetry to help memorize things. You know, “In fourteen hundred ninety-two Columbus sailed the ocean blue.” There were verses for religious education, too, memorizing (and summarizing!) the books of the Bible and other content. Of course, Luther’s Small Catechism falls into that genre, too, in its beautiful German crafting. Still, why not put together a book of Lutheran texts and verses for religious education?
