Well, at least he got suspended for doing something stupid like this. Would that would happen in other places, in other churches.
I fondly recall the conversation I had with A.L. Barry when I first came to work with him at the International Center after he had been elected president. I had only clerical shirts from my time in the parish and could not afford to go out and purchase other clothing. So I asked him how he felt about me wearing my clerical collar all the time. He simply laughed and said, "I don't care what's around your neck, but what's between your ears."
Great quote/comments. Could you/would you please provide the bibliographic citation for these quotes? Many thanks.
Let us hope that there is someone smarter. I'm thinking Weedon might have the answer, or know where to direct us for it. I ask this for, frankly, self-serving reasons. I am trying to blog on the historic lectionary every Sunday, offering the readings appointed, and Luther's sermon and a Bach Cantata for the day, but Transfiguration has me stumped!
OK, I'm confused. [insert cheap shots here].
I can't find "Transfiguration" observed in the lectionary Luther used, and the one that Bach's Leipzig was using, for that matter.
Yes, definitely more coming.
Jay, unless I'm mistaken, you can subscribe to them all on iTunes. See the linky thingie up on the upper right, under the two RSS feed options? I'm sure Ryan Markel will have more to say. When I clicked on it, it displayed all the podcasts in iTunes.
Hi Phil, I am the publisher here at Concordia Publishing House and have access to the files of The Lutheran Study Bible and so am able to quote from it.
Stay tuned, more information later.
