In our blindness, Jesus is our Vision. In our hunger, Jesus is the Bread of Life. In our searching, Jesus is our Answer. In our quest for love and acceptance, ...

Lutherans and the Benedict Option: Charting our way in a post-Christian society

Monday, August 13, 2018

by Esko Murto To tell a complicated thing in a simple way is better than telling a simple thing in a complicated way. Rod Dreher’s 2017 book The Benedict Option falls into the first category. It is approachable, easy to read, and clear enough, but deals with a topic both important and complex—namely, how the Christian Church can go on in a post-Christian world. What’s so Benedictine about the Benedict Option? The name “Benedict Option” needs a bit of explaining though—and after that, a bit of more explaining. The Benedict of the title ...

Consider All The Works Thy Hand Has Made

Friday, August 10, 2018

by Timothy Teuscher We who bear the name of Christ by virtue of our baptism are a new creation. And while we live in this world, we are not, as He says, to be “of the world” (John 17:14). St. John tells us not to “love the things of the world” (1 John 2:15). Likewise, St. Paul warns us against having “minds on earthly things” (Philippians 3:19). At the same time, however, the First Article of the Creed reminds us that this world, even though it bears the effect of sin, is ...
