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)

Past Elder Goes Print Media!

Those of you who take The Lutheran Witness can read a condensed version of my blog post The Twelve Days of Christmas in the December issue. The online edition will have the full article in January.

I'm really pleased about it, twice over. Once in that they asked me, and again in that they did a fine job of editing it for their periodical. Who knew I could be so concise!

The original post was in 2007, the year Past Elder began on 23 February. It was revised for 2008 and a More Twelve Days of Christmas post added some more stuff. The 2009 version combined the two, with revisions. That post was the basis for the Lutheran Witness article. The 2010 blog version will appear on Past Elder on 26 December, the Feast of Stephen.
