Our Favorite Petition Comments

(Twice a month we will be featuring our favorite quotes from the “Bring Back Issues, Etc.” petition site. The number in the title of the quote refers to the order in which it was recorded on the petition site.)

I was struck by the fact that a 14 year old was interested in Issues, Etc. Conventional wisdom — wisdom of the world (and even in my congregation) says that young adults aren’t interested in this type of thing. Praise bands, that’s the ticket! Higher Things anyone?

3706. Magdalena Olson, Zion Lutheran Church, Marshall, MI
I am 14. My mom and dad ALWAYS listened to mp3’s and we listened too. I learned so much because I heard it all the time. We met Pastor Todd and Jeff here in Michigan. This is very sad. I learned a lot of stuff that helps me in confirmation class. I don’t understand. Did Pastor Todd and Jeff do something wrong?

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.

Norm has been involved behind the scenes in many of the "go-to" websites for Lutherans going back many years.

  1. God bless this child, and my prayers go out to all youth in our synod and all the church that organizations like Higher Things show adults that faithful practice with the divine service and hymns containing Law and Gospel are rich enough for everyone to love and appreciate.
