A Shoot from the Stump of Jesse
Sunday, December 8th 2019
The 8th Century BC prophet, Isaiah, has been called the Shakespeare of Hebrew literature. He is quoted more times in the New Testament than all the other Old Testament prophets combined. No other Biblical author matches his vocabulary and use of imagery. Our lesson this morning is a case in point. From death and destruction comes hope and new life. From a mere stump will spring forth a shoot, and a branch from its roots will bear fruit! Find out why it is called the "stump of Jesse" and why this is good news for all the nations of the world...

The Words of Institution
Wednesday, December 11th 2019

Continuing our discussion on Holy Communion, this week I think it will be important to carefully consider the Words of Institution, and we will do so by utilizing the translation we are accustomed to in the Lutheran Book of Worship.

Fortification at the Lord's Table
Tuesday, December 3rd 2019

In our ongoing series dealing with the celebration of Holy Communion, this week I want us to consider the role of this Sacrament in the context of the other important aspects of the Christian Faith. Just what role does the Lord’s Supper play?

The Lord's Supper
Wednesday, November 20th 2019

This week I am starting a new series in which we will be taking a look at our practice of celebrating Holy Communion, or what Luther like to call it “The Lord’s Supper”.

Adiaphora Part 3
Wednesday, November 13th 2019

There is a third matter considered "adiaphora" in our Lutheran Tradition that I wish to touch on, and that is the Church Calendar.

A Wise Guide to Scripture Reading
Wednesday, November 6th 2019

I promised last week that I would write more on why it is a mistake to abandon a common lectionary. Again, let me refresh you that a lectionary is a schedule of Bible readings. The Revised Common Lectionary, a Protestant effort based on the Roman Catholic Ordo Lectionum Missae, was formed and is used by a large number of Protestant denominations, including, but not limited to, the American Baptist Church, the Episcopal Church, Several Lutheran Bodies, the Moravian Church, the Presbyterian Church, the United Methodist Church, and others.
