Notes on the Liturgy

This is a series of articles of Notes on the Liturgy that were originally written as a set of bulletin inserts by Pastor David Oberdieck. We want to thank Pastor Mathey and Pastor Michael Mohr for helping us to update and publish them on BJS. They have been updated to refer to the LSB rather than LW, and have had various expansions done for publication here.
