Great Stuff Found on the Web — Reading through the Small Catechism on the Wittenberg Trail

Found on the MNN Faithful List, from Kari Anderson:

I’d like to invite you to join us on the Wittenberg Trail to study Luther’s Small Catechism. I’ve posted the “Preface” to get us started. Please, if you have friends, relatives, Lutherans or people that may wonder what Lutherans believe, teach, and confess. Ask them to join us.

Kari has been posting portions from the Book of Concord on the Wittenberg Trail since May of last year. She started at the three creeds and has read linearly through it, posting a new section approximately every week. People chime in with questions or discussions. Join them as they start another section of the Book of Concord.

This fits right in with BJS’s goal of getting people reading through the Book of Concord and learning more about the Confessions of the Lutheran Church. If you can’t join Kari on the Trail, be sure to purchase a Readers Edition copy or follow the on-line daily readings (sign up for the google group or follow them by twitter)

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.
