You know how you aren’t supposed to say certain things? I don’t mean cuss words. I mean that there are all these people who want you to live a life by law: do this, that, and the other, and then you’ll be a real writer. Want to know what real Lutheran writing is? Writing from the Gospel.

The series goes on with Part V. Today’s post is hinged more on the Gospel: redeeming!
I’m a little torn how long to let this series run. Any suggestions? I know I have readers, but you lot sure can be quiet. 😉 I have other announcements building up, so next week the series may not run consecutive days.
Welcome again to our series on Law & Gospel for Writers (See Part I and Part II). Today we’re going to stray just a little. After distinctions about the Law, we’re going to look at a distinction of sorts about the Gospel. Don’t worry: we’ll look at what is written in Scripture. Though, please, correct me if I’m wrong! 🙂 Continue reading
Yesterday, in my new series, Law & Gospel for Writers, I introduced a few distinctions about the Law and asked whether you are thinking in terms of enough. Today, in Part II, a central concept will be binding. Are you binding yourself under rules? Are you sometimes tempted to think that being bound is actually better, more productive, or more successful?
Hello! Today I’m starting Day 1 of my first series: Law & Gospel for Writers. In this, I hope to explore elements of Law & Gospel discourse, of course, but it will focus on writers, writing, and common characteristics of writer’s life. Now, each post may not be as polished as I’d hoped but I hope that together we can come up with a helpful little course that maybe I can offer as an email course sometime. In part these are things it’s just good and helpful to hear. Just maybe it can be a more focused “consolation of the brethren” among fellow writers.
If I say something you disagree with, please do let me know.
Today is the release day for The Necessary Distinction: A Continuing Conversation on Law & Gospel!
I got behind on finishing Pless’s Handling the Word of Truth since I set it down . . . somewhere . . . but a five star review is still coming from me for that reread. In the meantime, I found out about a new book set to come out from CPH titled The Necessary Distinction: A Continuing Conversation on Law and Gospel.
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.
