A New Manual For the Districts? Just In Time For The Conventions!

One of the neat things about my sitemeter is the fact that I can track what searches bring folks to my blog. Someone, it seems, wanted to know how to put out a fire. One such search led to this site on AltaVista which led to this site on Amazon.

This gem was the first book listed at the Amazon site. I, of course, am happy to help anybody figure out how to put out a fire. And check out that title! Do ya see it?! The fire of fear! That's almost too true to be laughing at. Isn't it fear that keeps the Ablaze! bonfire going. Isn't it fear that that the Gospel just isn't going to get out without our help. Isn't this fear just a lack of trust that causes us to dismiss St. Paul when he writes in Romans 10:18 "But I say, have they not heard? Yes indeed: "Their sound has gone out to all the earth, And their words to the ends of the world." Isn't it a fear of trusting that God can and will be God and that He will be where his Church is? Isn't it that same fear when we think we can help God out by printing glossy new pamphlets and knocking on doors? Isn't it fear that makes us want to be the subject of the verbs instead of Christ when talking about church?

I just wish the leaders of our beloved synod and districts listened to me. I'd be more than happy to set them straight. I guess the first thing I'd do is get them all a copy of the Unaltered McCain Edition of The Book Of Concord: Concordia: The Lutheran Confessions-A Reader's Edition of the Book of Concord. Yep, that would be a good start.

Frank, have you checked out the new Ablaze song on the Ablaze site? http://www.lcms.org/pages/internal.asp?NavID=5973

Perhaps we could get all of these included in the Hymnal Supplement for LSB.
