Want to hear something awesome? There are now five books of simplified Lutheran hymns—basically melody spread into both hands—arranged by Maggie Casey and posted free for all here. Who’s a fan of Hymns for Small Lutheran Hands? This girl!!! My eleven-year old was just playing some yesterday and it was exactly what this stressed out momma needed to hear!

Hi. Now is probably not the time to sign up to take some free courses online. Or, is it? The way many of these work is you get a daily or weekly email with a video embedded or linked. You can actually DO them whenever you get around to it. So . . . it’s totally a gift to the world, humanity, and, in some of these awesome cases, the church!
Let’s lend a minute to the O Antiphons! The time has come as we approach Christmas Eve(ning). 🙂
Lent is not a season of only Law. Lent is a time of both Law and Gospel. So, if you have already failed a Lenten discipline, I have good news for you. Jesus became Man, taking on our very flesh, to live the life we can’t and to die the death we have earned. To God, you are still wet with the waters of holy Baptism and you drip with the righteousness that only our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ came give–or earn. In fact, the Holy Spirit grants you flowing rivers of living water. And, guess what? There are more Lent resources for 2018 to help immerse you in the gifts God has already given you.
You know how I feel about free resources. Today I can offer you a good number of free downloads from LWML Bible studies. Just scroll about half way to the bottom of this link and you’ll see them clear as day:

Happy Commemoration of Hymnwriters Philipp Nicolai, Johann Heermann and Paul Gerhardt! 🙂 I know. You all made cakes to honor it, didn’t you. Still it’s a good day to honor the writers who came before us and have blessed generations with their powerful texts and biblical messages! Raise a glass or a song!
In more Reformational news, I’ve got a selection of Reformation videos to share with you today.
This post is particularly for LCMS church workers or their families about a project that may be able to help us all, rostered or otherwise. 🙂 Heidi Goehmann is helping to put together a collection of 30 free devotions to help church worker wellness within the LCMS. There will be a synod church worker wellness site offering them as free PDFs and then everyone can benefit! The premise is worker-to-worker, hence the restriction on who writes for it.
I’m still finding resources for my free resource page, Crafts and Crafted for Free, so here’s another one: Knowledge of Him. Their goal is to provide free, easy to use resources that encourage you in your daily walk with Christ and pursuit of the knowledge of Him. Their focus is on encouraging reading Scripture and daily prayer, but I suspect they have plans to expand and they are very open to requests and suggestions. Woo hoo! 🙂
