The Purpose of Satire


Hans FieneWhat is the place of humor, satire, snark, and mocking in confessing the truth of God’s Word? What actually makes for good satire and humor? Pr. Hans Fiene – of “The Lutheran Satire” fame – joins us to discuss how he confesses the truth and teaches the faith by making fun of stuff. Pr. Fiene will also present on this topic at the 2015 Brothers of John the Steadfast Conference.

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.

More of his work can be found at

  1. If you are in the St. Louis area, you may listen to KFUO (850 am) at 8 am and 1015 am Sunday to a live service from the area. Also, 5 pm Saturday. These services should satisfy any ACELC person.
    Probably with the “apps”, you may be able to listen outside the STL area.
