A Couple of Links

Happy Mother’s Day, indeed.  Happy Mother’s Day to my mother and my wife.

I didn’t know that Dr. Nagel (Professor Emeritus at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis) was writing for CT.  That’s a joke, but do yourself a favor and listen to any or all of these mp3s in the “Issues, Etc.” archives.  Nagel deserves to be the most influential Lutheran theologian going now.  (Of course, he couldn’t care less about such a designation, but he has a knack for cutting to the heart of any question and hitting bedrock for the sake of the comfort of salvation.)


Call Day

Finally, after five years (including my STM year), the day has come.  Just a few hours until I receive my call into the Office of the Holy Ministry.

A fitting meditation for today, as well as for all vocations in this world, is Dr. Joel Biermann’s sermon given yesterday in the chapel.  Go here, launch itunesU, and the sermon is number 81.

If you’re interested in watching or hearing the call service tonight at 7, you can find the link for that here.

Please pray for all the candidates from both seminaries (Ft. Wayne had its service last night) as they prepare for the ministry at the places to which God has called them.
