Love the hymns in that worship service! Thanks for sharing it with us here.

Your Turn / Dr. James Nestingen, RIP
January 01, 2023, 07:13:33 AM
Hello all,

Dr. James Nestingen fell asleep in Jesus Saturday, Dec. 31st, 2022. I know he was close friends with Dr. John Pless who sometimes posts here. I pray for comfort in the certain resurrection of the dead for all who mourn.

Rest eternal, grant him, O Lord.

Here it is, with an appearance by Sarah MacLaughlan.

I saw that on social media. Was it Neuhaus who wrote about the dreaded alt.? This is light years beyond that.

It is now simply a wintertime song. There are no certain shepherds hearing glad tidings of the Son of God by name. There is nothing in the new song that brings comfort to gentlemen or gentlewoman. And that probably is the point of the new song.

A tip for all is to find the version of the old song by The Barenaked Ladies on YouTube.

And the Eastern part of the Church?

Charles, the motto of The Lutheran Witness is: Interpreting the world through a Lutheran perspective. So...the opinion of the Eastern Church may not necessarily be on the radar of the magazine.

And yes, the article is very good and helpful.

Is "The message body was empty" the new Easter proclamation?

The message body was empty!
It was empty indeed! Alleluia!

I think this updating of the lingo will work well across the generations. Boomers to Millenials will all understand the problem of an empty message but in relation to Jesus, it will be absolute joy!

And if you think Boulevard is a local KC brewery, well, sort of. They sold out years ago and are a corporate brewery. They still make fine products- Tank 7 and Bob's Octoberfest are my favorites of theirs.

If you are not into beer, J. Rieger and Co is a fine distiller of whiskey.

Convention delegates often hash things out over libations, and in 2016 there was a gathering of Forum participants on a patio. Jim Butler and I had a nice bourbon together. Weedon was there, Paul Sauer, a couple of others.

I'm pretty certain this is true, but I believe that beverage behemoth InBev owns MillerCoors. InBev already owns Anheuser Busch and is known in America as AB-InBev. So all the beer money goes to the same place- Brazil. The rivalry between Miller and AB is really not a thing.

Now if the LCMS wants to have a convention in KC- sites in downtown KC or Overland Park, then local beer would be a good option. Kansas City Bier Co is an independent craft brewer and imports the malt, barley, and hops from Germany. The brew everything themselves but outsource their distribution.

The owner is an LCMS Lutheran who would welcome delegates for a liter, a pretzel, a wurst.

Could we  say that Hannah's song was the first Advent hymn, of which Mary borrowed heavily from that song?   ;)

Jim, I'm a little confused....Prof. Schulz is now giving thanks for CUWAA's end of wokeism, though they are still calling Erik Ankerberg as their president and Schulz still remains suspended and under threat of termination. Why the change of heart? Was there a booth review to overturn the call on the field? (Watching football waiting for the Chiefs game to start.)

I don't understand Schulz' change of heart.  Edit: I see that the SWD is repudiating wokeism but in what fashion?

This is a relatively recent interview from Issues Etc. Todd interviews John Lomparis from the Institute on Religion and Democracy. It was a good, informative interview.

Non-Christians gonna non-Christian.

Surprised it took them this long to chase relevance.

They all seem well qualified. Good and varied experience in the world and with the church. But have some of them resigned since the recent announcement?


PS And where has that Packers team been all year?!?!

Rev. Likeness, when I was at CURF in the early 90s, synodical financial support was already a small amount. I can't imagine it has gotten any bigger.

One thing from the president's letter that caught my eye was that some of CTX's regents have resigned following CTX's decision to restructure their relationship with synod. That struck me as curious.

Those who deny the existence and impact of the extremists - not the occasional crazies, but the organized, on-the-campaign-trail folks - have, I believe, their heads in the sand. QAnon, election deniers, "Christian" nationalists, anti-Semites, white supremacists, are running for office and many are likely to win, unless (my hope) a massive massive turnout of progressive voters and smart women make the current polls irrelevant. Michael Flynn draws huge crowds and may have a role in a Republican administration. Ms. Greene, once stripped of her committee assignments, is back in favor. Kevin McCarthy would sell his soul and probably his mother's soul as well, for a seat of power.
Do folks here really - and I mean really - think the Democrats are equally populated with loonies?

Without a doubt

If I can gently take your blinders off Charles, Nancy Pelosi and Kevin McCarthy are exactly the same people and are members of the same party, or belong to the duopoly. The progressives are getting heckled for their warmongering and limited blank check for the US and NATO's proxy war vs. Russia. The non-Repulican party is the party of censorship and selling out to corporations and making sure that their disinformation is the only information carried by the media.

What does this have to do with Christian nationalism? I'm not entirely certain other than that Christian nationalism is mostly myth, mostly being 90%.
