Get Them to Church

| July 1, 2019

There is a 0.0296% chance your child will become a professional athlete. There is a 100% chance your child will stand before Jesus. Get them to church. Mark 9:42 “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around […]

The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit

| May 17, 2019

Before you start reading this, open up your Bible and read John chapter 5. John 5 is an absolutely critical text for understanding the interrelationship between the Father and the Son. Jesus builds on the foundation that has been laid in the previous chapters. He begins the discourse with the statement “Truly, truly,” drawing the […]

What we are about has to do with Jesus

| April 7, 2019

This is quite true, but what about Jesus? There are two options that churches commonly take, when it comes to the centrality of Jesus as their mission: Either Jesus is firstly your example, or he is firstly your Savior. I propose that if these are in the incorrect order we will get many things wrong! […]

Slow Down

| March 7, 2019

Recently Laura and I started team writing for a ministry called 1517. I would like to share with you our first post. “The truth is, of course, that what one regards as interruptions are precisely ones life.” -C.S. Lewis Arm over arm I make my way to the other side of the pool. Mentally I […]

This is the story of the Rag Man

| February 10, 2019

This month I want to share with you a story that I find powerful. Ragman by Walter Wangerin, Jr. I saw a strange sight. I stumbled upon a story most strange, like nothing my life, my street sense, my sly tongue had ever prepared me for. Hush, child. Hush, now, and I will tell it […]

Made Beautiful

| November 1, 2018

500 years ago this year Luther penned the Heidelberg Disputation. He delivered it at a pastor’s conference of Augustinian Monks in April. While the 95 theses, only nailed about 6 months prior, clarified and brought to light many things, they are quite far from being “Lutheran.” But here in the Heidelberg Disputation, we have all […]

Dear Parent,

| September 1, 2018

Dear Parent, “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”  Proverbs 22:6 The goal of Religious Education is to pass along the Christian Faith. The Christian Faith is the only thing that is going to last beyond your life and the life of […]

Part of Knowing Who You Are, Is knowing Where You Have Been

| June 1, 2018

And so who are we as Lutheran Christians?   We as LCMS Lutherans are a confessional Church. This does not refer to the fact that we confess our sins every Sunday in Church (though this is important as well) but the fact that we are confessional means that we have a statement of beliefs of […]

Baptism Saves and Empowers

| May 1, 2018

In a culture where science claims an answer to most mysteries it is refreshing to take a look at a people who really did believe in, and made a big deal out of, the mysterious gifts that God gives his Church. The teachings of the ministries of God of the early Church is profoundly interesting, […]

Have You Ever Been Stuck in Life?

| April 1, 2018

“Come near me and listen to this: “From the first announcement I have not spoken in secret; at the time it happens, I am there”…. This is what the LORD says— your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you […]
