Hey, Lutheran friend! I came a across your blog, and though we disagree on a lot, I am also Lutheran (ELCA)! I was wondering if you know any other Lutheran bloggers?

Hi! There are a bunch of us! 

Here’s the ones I know off the top of my head: 

fangirl0013, summerspurplerose, lutherandb8r, lutheran16conservative, a-life-lived-well, tardishobbit

They don’t all necessarily post a lot about Lutheranism, but they’re Lutheran, so yeah :)

If anyone else wants in on this list, reblog and say hi :P I know I’m missing a few here. 

The world bears the Gospel a grudge because the Gospel condemns the religious wisdom of the world. Jealous for its own religious views, the world in turn charges the Gospel with being a subversive and licentious doctrine, offensive to God and man, a doctrine to be persecuted as the worst plague on earth.
As a result we have this paradoxical situation: The Gospel supplies the world with the salvation of Jesus Christ, peace of conscience, and every blessing. Just for that the world abhors the Gospel.
—  Martin Luther, Commentary on Galatians
Thus you can gather how foolish it is- in fact, how terribly deceived so many people obviously are- when they ridicule pure doctrine and say to us, “Enough already with your ‘Pure doctrine, pure doctrine’! That can lead only to dead orthodoxy. Focus on pure living instead. That way you will plant the seeds of righteous Christianity.” That would be like saying to a farmer, “Stop fretting about good seed! Be concerned about good fruit instead.”

The Rosary... Lutheran Style!

- Start at the crucifix and make the sign of the cross. Then say The Apostle’s Creed.
- move to the first bead and say the Lord’s Prayer.
- on the next three beads say the Pre-1550 Hail Mary.
- on the chain following the third bead say a Glory Be.
- move to the next bead and announce the first mystery and say the Lord’s Prayer.
- on the next ten beads say ten Pre-1550 Hail Mary’s.
- the chain after the tenth bead, say a Glory Be.
- repeat pattern of Lord’s Prayer, ten Pre-1550 Hail Mary’s, and a Glory Be for the next four mysteries, announcing each mystery before each Lord’s Prayer.
- at the centerpiece after all five mysteries have been meditated on, end with The Evangelical Praise to The Mother of God.

Just found out that a cute,single,Lutheran guy lives 45 minutes from me. WHHHATTTT. He also sings tenor,plays organ,and watches Duck Dynasty AND wait for it… was HOMESCHOOLED! He was very involved in Higher Things so knows a lot of the same LCMS people I do! I’m meeting him this weekend bc we’re both singing in the circuit hymnfest for the Commemoration of St. Michael and All Angels! Laura was right, They DO exist!

It’s easy to forget we have peace with God. Our conscience in particular might bother us because of what we’ve said or thought or done. We may struggle with our own sins and the sins of others. It’s like a battle and we wish we were at peace. That’s because we forget that Jesus did indeed come to bring us peace with God.
