Pastor Luther:  His Music and His Care of the Soul

St. Paul will be hosting a Worship Conference on October 6-8 with a Hymn Festival on Monday evening at 7pm, the 7th.  Plenary presenters will be Dr. Carl Fickenscher and Kantor Kevin Hildebrand who will also serve as the Hymn Festival organist.

This conference is devoted to teaching practical skills to pastors, to musicians (full and part-time) and interested laypeople as they explore ways to apply the rich treasures of Lutheran hymnody and theology in the local congregation.  Some of the sessions are highly theological, others more practical, but all are meant to help pastors appreciate better the role of music in the proclamation of the Word and to help musicians think critically about their ministry.  In addition to opportunities for worship and a hymn festival, the conference is designed to inspire church leaders with ideas they can apply in their home parish as they work to proclaim the Gospel through Word and Sacrament.

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, LCMSsermons.com, 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.

More of his work can be found at KNFA.net.
