The Nebraska Lutherans for Confessional Study (NLCS) have been meeting in Nebraska for over 20 years. It is a monthly gathering of both clergy and laity to study Lutheran theology, a monthly “free conference” if you will. Presenters vary and generally present a theological paper; once presented the paper or presentation is in the public domain. NLCS has met in various locations in the past, but currently meets each month at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Lincoln, Nebraska. The gatherings are generally on the 4th Thursday of the month, depending on the church calendar. Rev. Brent Kuhlman bb55841 (at) of Murdock, Nebraska is in charge of program and Rev.

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.

  1. Great stuff. Now if we can only help folks understand what appears to be so crusty on the outside is wonderfully sweet on the inside. I am convinced that if a Pastor is persistent about emphasising the means of grace and instructs his flock on how to witness God will use it to grow His church. Digging into God’s word in this manner is always fruitful because He told us to do it and nothing he tells us to do is for His sake, it is for ours.
