I daresay there’s an assortment of people who follow this blog. Some know me better than others. Do you all know I’ve served as an LCMS-rostered deaconess for about the last 10 years? And, yesterday Trinity Lutheran Church held a deaconess installation for me as I am newly called there! Yay!

As I try to cater to a Lutheran crowd, I don’t review many non-Lutheran books here. Having said that, I think Anya von Bremzen’s Mastering the Art of Soviet Cooking: A Memoir of Food and Longing was phenomenal!
I do not believe in fortune telling of any kind. I do not believe fortune cookies are in any way mystical or reliable. (Any other disclaimer I should make?) Having said that, it’s rare for me to pass up a cookie so I’m sharing a fortune cookie “fortune,” or really the saying, below.
I’m mostly taking a snow/cold day, but I wanted to ask you if any of you are interested in an LCMS Flash Fiction Progressive Story Trail? The awesome Lisa Stapp is thinking about setting one up if she gets enough volunteers. 🙂 Best way to communicate with her may be heading over the Facebook Group Writing (LCMS) Lutherans* and comment on her post or the poll she put up.
* LCMS is more code than necessity. The group was made to be a safe place for conservative, confessional Lutherans who like to write. We don’t mean to exclude resurrection-, means-of-grace believing folks.
Represent. The word. We have connotations about it, right? Perhaps the main point being that representation implies the person being represented is actually absent. Are you following this? Well, reconsider represent & re-present.
The hardest part changes. And that is ok! Really! No matter what! Because of God and all He does and promises. 🙂
CPH has just provided a very timely service. 🙂 I’ve been wanting to find a chronological ordering of Scripture for the next time I read through. Not only has CPH arranged for that, but they are offering 5 free Bible Reading plans, some covering all of Scripture with others being directed readings!
