New feature on the BJS site — Confessional Calendar

For the past several months, Brothers of John the Steadfast have had a calendar on our LutheranWiktionary site. It hasn’t taken off like we’d have liked it to, as the site doesn’t get the traffic that the Brothers of John the Steadfast site gets. The implementation also was not ideal; it was a bit hard I think to figure out how to find information there.

Per requests from some associated organizations, as well as our own observed need for a common calendar, we have now added a calendar directly to this site. On the right sidebar you find the word “Calendar” .. click on that an a list of upcoming seminars and conferences is shown. Click on the date of the event, and you will see full information about the event. The calendar page also has a mini-calendar .. you can change to the month you want using the < and > buttons, or click on a day that has an event on it to view that event.

We would appreciate any comments on either the implementation, look and feel, or submission of additional events. Feel free to submit comments or events to me by email. If you have an upcoming event that you are trying to publicize, or know of an announcement published on the web somewhere, send them in. We will try to periodically call attention to upcoming events on the calendar in addition to having the calendar easily accessable.

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,, 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.
