Great Stuff Found on the Web — Pastor Wilhelm Torgerson Explains the 95 Theses Posting at the Castle Church

In the afterglow of Reformation services and celebrations all around the world, our readers might enjoy this recent post by Dr. Al Collver on his blog. It includes a YouTube video of Pastor Wilhelm Torgerson, formerly a resident of Wittenberg in Saxony, explaining the bronze doors to the Castle Church, where Luther posted his 95 theses. The camera goes sideways for a minute, so the viewer can see the entire door and the painting above the doors. Below the video on the blog, there is also a “slideshow” of significant sites in the old town section of Wittenberg. The slideshow is worth viewing for anyone who wonders what Wittenberg looks like today. Enjoy the views and video!

P.S. Dr. Collver and President Harrison were in Wittenberg on business for the International Lutheran Council meeting.

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.
