I wanted to call attention to our postings on Facebook; we have a “Sayings from Luther” and other historical Lutherans that we post on Facebook each morning.
Be sure to “like” our facebook page to receive these each morning.
The one from today was:
Luther on the Order of Service: The service now in common use everywhere goes back to genuine Christian beginnings, as does the office of preaching. But as the latter has been perverted by the spiritual tyrants, so the former has been corrupted by the hypocrites. As we do not on that account abolish the office of preaching, but aim to restore it again to its right and proper place, so it is not our intention to do away with the service, but to restore it again to its rightful use.
