Satirical and Direct Preaching at the BJS Conference: Fiene and Sikora, by Pr. Rossow

When we plan a BJS conference we not only focus on the speakers but also try to recruit preachers who will fill your ears with Christ and his doctrine. This year is no different. We are happy that Revs. Hans Fiene and Tony Sikora have accepted our invitation to preach our two services.

Pastor Fiene is well known for his Lutheran Satire videos that are gut-wrenchingly funny and poignantly truthful. He will be preaching at our Service of Evening Prayer on Friday night. He is the pastor of River of Life Lutheran Church in Chanahon, Illinois and will most likely be seen at our No Pietists Allowed smoking party later Friday evening.

Pastor Ed (Tony) Sikora is BJS’s own internet preacher. We publish his Sunday sermons here on the website. He is pastor of Hope Lutheran Church in DeWitt, Michigan. From my personal experience with him I can tell you he is a pastor’s pastor. He has got the whole package – solid doctrine, a compassionate heart for being with his people, and he is a straight-forward, direct preacher. Tony minces no words although he is quite proficient at turning a phrase. He preaches the Christ from each text and does so with a style that directly confronts his hearers with the law and lathers on the sweet Word of the Gospel which is always the final and better Word in his sermons. He will be preaching our Divine Service on Saturday morning.
