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. Speaking of getting church and synod news via the internet, including BJS, rather than the print media, is there any news on whether Pres. Harrision made a decision about the call to be a noncompensated assistant pastor of Village Lutheran Church, Ladue?

  2. I guess I am still old school. I love to read my books in hard cover, and not on a computer. I still like to wake up, reach out, and pull in my Arizona Republic.

    I love the internet for great websites like John the Steadfast, Issues, Etc., WELS and the fun Riddleblog.

    But, for the most part, I will soon be ordering some new Luther’s Works, and some works by the great Lutheran theologian Martin Chemnitz (the second Martin!) from Concordia and Northwestern Publishing houses. I love to open my new books and smell the new pages, and have my pot of Starbucks brewing!

    I just can’t imagine sitting in front of a computer reading these fine books.
