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. I listened to these yesterday and they are an excellent series. You will learn why the Athanasian Creed is so necessary, not only for when it was written, but also for today. And how it clarifies so many things. All taken right from God’s Word.

    Our adherence to this creed clearly separates us from false religions that have arisen in the past or will come in the future.

    Thanks to Pastors Weedon & Wilken for their work on this!

    God’s Blessings,

  2. Nice to have all of these together. Some years ago I was looking up the history of the Athanasian Creed and discovered that in the early days of its existence they used to chant it, as I recall. Does anybody have a clue what the chant tones were and how it was done?
