Anyone who follows the political scene knows that the United States, the individual states, and the cities are in financial crisis.  Politicians talk the subject to death but exhibit little fortitude to do the hard things that will balance the books. Instead, many seem to get particular pleasure out of targeting those whose Read More
To the statement in our title we might say, “Duh!” Is this news? To some it apparently is. The quote was the headline of an article in a local  newspaper a few years ago.

In concluding our second article on the topic "What is Truly Lutheran?", we summarized the contents of the Augsburg Confession . The Augsburg Confession—the classic confession of the Lutheran Church—was read publicly in June of 1530. One of the Catholic bishops who heard it said, “All of this is Read More
