Rev. Dr. John W. Sias was a parish pastor before becoming LCMS synodical secretary. Before that he was a classmate of mine at Concordia Theological Seminary so, well, I can tell you that he loves White Castle hamburgers and has described avocados as green butter. Ha ha haaa. Anyway, I bring him up because he’s offering a series and study combination for free: Catechesis for Life.
Go here to get more details and the files. I’d say it’s good for personal, family, and congregational use. 🙂
I’ll be sure to add it to my Free Lutheran Resource page!
And, while you’re downloading that treasure of a freebie, be sure to look around the rest of LutheranCatechism.com.
LCMS author Rev. Lincoln Winter, who blogs at “Predigtamt: Musings of a Circuit Riding Parson,” has now released Catechetics: Fixing Confirmation!
Want to know what makes a great Reformation confession? A new catechism translation! Now, I know, I know, too many word changes messes up memory work and causes unnecessary confusion. I hear you. I agree. BUT yay, yay, yay for the Evangelical Lutheran Church of England for presenting the world with a Small Catechism available for free use!
Ok, ladies and gentlemen, you may be aware that the LCMS is in the process of updating the additional material attached to Luther’s Small Catechism. I look forward to seeing it. But here is an idea I would love for one (or more) of you to tackle: catechism questions.
