Feed My Lambs

In a desperate reaction to closed churches when people needed the church more than ever, a noticeable number of Lutheran pastors instituted what is known as "online communion".

A Time To Sew

Solomon, inspired by the Spirit of God, said 3,000 years ago that there is, "Atime to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak." (Eccl. 3:7) The last several months have proved themselves "a time to tear". Some have torn, and we have all been torn. But we will not engage in either the politics or the science of viruses. Only in the Christian re...

While we, as Christians, are free to protest what we think is inequity we must not condone (m...

Chaplain Field Report - Cleveland OH June 5, 2020

The chaplain business has been swift of late. In the past week members of Cleveland EMS and Cleveland Police have been assaulted, as well have safety forces across the country. Major cities are talking about closing their police departments altogether. What! That is something that I cannot wrap my brain around, but the all out hatred of Law Enforcement has taken morale...
