About Norm Fisher

Norm was raised in the UCC in Connecticut, and like many fell away from the church after high school. With this background he saw it primarily as a service organization. On the miracle of his first child he came back to the church. On moving to Texas a few years later he found a home in Lutheranism when he was invited to a confessional church a half-hour away by our new neighbors.

He is one of those people who found a like mind in computers while in Middle School and has been programming ever since. He's responsible for many websites, including the Book of Concord, LCMSsermons.com, and several other sites.

He has served the church in various positions, including financial secretary, sunday school teacher, elder, PTF board member, and choir member.

More of his work can be found at KNFA.net.

  1. Dear BJS Bloggers,

    First, thanks to Norm for a great post on good news!

    Second, WOW! I am impressed with Chaplain Williamson. If you don’t have time for all three videos, pull up a chair with some coffee and watch the first one.

    I didn’t know Chaplain Williamson before this video intro, but I am really impressed. He has served high level command areas, he has worked closely with a variety of non-Lutheran chaplains, he has served overseas–and he is really committed to LCMS supporting our military chaplains (to which I agree 100%).

    The international perspective and experience is what is really going to be key for this new position that he will fill, at least in my opinion. And if anyone understands the nations of this world, from a ground-level-real-world perspective (as opposed to a political-diplomatic level), it is the people of the US Army and US Navy. Their lives depend on it. Excellent choice, President Harrison!

    May our Lord bless the work of our national offices in the coming years, through Williamson, Harrison, and many other faithful servants!

    Yours in Christ, Martin R. Noland

  2. I got to know Chaplain Williamson, while serving in Seoul. I concur with Pr. Noland.

    Chaplain Williamson is the right man “for such a time as this” for our synod!
