The Small Catechism Snippets on YouTube – a New BJS Project

June 6th, 2013 Post by

BJSYouTubeButtonw125Great news to our readers (and watchers!).  Some of our authors here at BJS are working diligently on what we are calling “The Brothers of John the Steadfast Catechism Series”, which are 2-5 minute video segment summaries of the Small Catechism for you to use in any way you see fit.  The first installment is available now on the Steadfast Lutherans YouTube channel.  In it Pastor Chris Hull describes in brief the need historically for the Small and Large Catechisms and also their continued relevance today for all Christians.  Take a peek, share it with your friends, you will not be disappointed.  And as the summer goes by, keep coming back for the next installments.  For those pastors in the parish, these videos may serve as great introductions in your confirmation classes if you like them.



Rules for comments on this site:

Engage the contents and substance of the post. Rabbit trails and side issues do not help the discussion of the topics.  Our authors work hard to write these articles and it is a disservice to them to distract from the topic at hand.  If you have a topic you think is important to have an article or discussion on, we invite you to submit a request through the "Ask a Pastor" link or submit a guest article.

Provide a valid email address. If you’re unwilling to do this, we are unwilling to let you comment.

Provide at least your first name. Please try to come up with a unique name; if you have a common name add something to it so you aren't confused with another user. We have several "john"'s already for example.  If you have a good reason to use a fake name, please do so but realize that the administrators of the site expect a valid email address and also reserve the right to ask you for your name privately at any time.

If you post as more than one person from the same IP address, we’ll block that address.

Do not engage in ad hominem arguments. We will delete such comments, and will not be obligated to respond to any complaints (public or private ones) about deleting your comments.

Interaction between people leaving comments ought to reflect Christian virtue, interaction that is gracious and respectful, not judging motives.  If error is to be rebuked, evidence of the error ought to be provided.

We reserve the right to identify and deal with trollish behavior as we see fit and without apology.  This may include warnings (public or private ones) or banning.

    Yes but is it as action-packed with ninjas and cats as Rev. Fisk’s videos? ;)

    You want it focused on the background, not on the speaker?
