Morgendämmerung, oder, Wie man mit dem Hammer theologirt.
Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit id es semper esse puerum.
Orandum est ut sit mens sana in corpore sano.
Homo sum humani nihil a me alienum puto.
Semper idem sed non eodem modo.


Verbum domini manet in aeternum. The word of the Lord endures forever.
1 Peter 1:24-25, quoting Isaiah 40:6,8. Motto of the Lutheran Reformation.

Fayth onely justifieth before God. Robert Barnes, DD The Supplication, fourth essay. London: Daye, 1572.

Lord if Thou straightly mark our iniquity, who is able to abide Thy judgement? Wherefore I trust in no work that I ever did, but only in the death of Jesus Christ. I do not doubt, but through Him to inherit the kingdom of heaven. Robert Barnes, DD, before he was burnt alive for "heresy", 30 July 1540.

What is Luther? The doctrine is not mine, nor have I been crucified for anyone. Martin Luther, Dr. theol. (1522)

Great New Blog!

Four of the pastors whose blogs are on my blogroll, along with another pastor, have begun a great new blog of "preaching, insights and notes" on the Scripture readings and calendar of the Western Church.

Lately, it's often called the "historic" lectionary to distinguish it from the one Rome came up with to replace it after their last council in the 1960s, which has become the basis for the calendar and lectionary of many if not most of the churches that bother with a calendar and lectionary.

It will be a great resource to locate our celebrations of Jesus in concert with the ongoing history of the Western catholic, or universal, church now nearly two millennia on and our brothers and sisters in faith past, present, and to come, rather than the disconnect revisionism of 1960s Rome and its wannabes.

Just in time for Septuagesima and Gesimatide, Pre-Lent as it is sometimes called -- one of the many casualties to Rome's "new order"!
