The Pastor Challenge

The Pastor Challenge

The Assist Pregnancy Center's Walk-Run-Ride for Life is coming up in May and this year I am challenging myself in order to challenge all of you! I am challenging myself to ride a "Metric Century" (100 kilometers) in four hours, and if I can ride farther than I ever have at one time before, I challenge all of you to support me more than ever before. I set my goal this year at $5,000, and our team (Lutherans for Life) at $7,500! If I can do it, you can do it. Assist helps so many mothers and babies, and they are expanding their facility to help even more - and so need our help more than ever, especially coming out of this pandemic. So please help! CLICK HERE to go to my sponsor page to sponsor me, or you can sponsor anyone else who joins the team, or the team as a whole.

Will you step up to the challenge??

Yes, this actually happens . . . often.

Good humor always concerns the truth. I find this hilarious - about planning for a wedding.

My Week at School

Well, the good news is that I passed the Latin proficiency exam I took last week (only three more language exams to go!); but the bad news is that the mid-term exam in my class on "The Catholic Reformation from 1400-1560" was impossible. I actually thought I was decently prepared, but he pulled out some minutiae that just . . . wow. Well, it's over. Gotta move on.

Please, stop.

Dear NFL,

The wearing of "throwback" uniforms is a fad that has run its course. No one likes these uniforms. They are ugly. There is a reason why they are not being used anymore. Please stop. We like our teams to look like our teams. Thank you.

Which Letter?

Just a fun post . . . which letter on your keyboard gets the most use? For me, it seems to be the letter "A." On two computers now, this is the letter that has shown the most wear. Which is it for you?

Good Sale on Good Books

CPH is having a sale you might want to check out.

First, the Readers Edition of the Book of Concord is on sale. The hardback edition is on sale for $20 (regularly $31). But you may want to check out the "premium leather edition" which is on sale for $25 (regularly $70!!). That's 64% off for you math majors. Click here to see the leather, and here to see the hardcover.

Secondly, a new book called "Lutheranism 101" is on sale. I have not read it yet, but it has been receiving many good reviews. I just ordered one - they're on sale right now for $15 (regularly $25). Check it out here.

Third, the new and improved edition of Walther's Law and Gospel is on sale for $20 (regularly $30). This book contains a series of lectures given by our first synodical president to the students at Concordia Seminary on how to preach, rightly dividing God's Word of truth as Law and Gospel. It is a must read for every seminarian and pastor, and good for layfolk as well. Click here for information.

Lastly, the sale on the Lutheran Study Bible continues. There are many editions to choose from. Go here to check them out.

I'm not sure how long all these sales will last for, so go check them out! And if you want to see any of these books before buying them, just let me know - I will be happy to show them to you. (Unless, of course, you are reading this blog from somewhere across the US or the world. Then you're on your own!)
