My wife and I don’t always harmonize that well when it comes to music. She plays piano, took up the cello, sang with the Fireside Singers, and was a part of 2 different bands who performed around Saskatoon, SK. She enjoys a wide range of genres, playing anything from The Weepies to Nero in our apartment, and singing Worship music or the Les Misérables music to herself while brushing her teeth. I, on the other hand… Continue reading “Mending.”
Steven Mueller, regarding the Lutheran Confessions, suggests that “We cannot honestly say that we agree [with the Confessions] unless we have read and studied both the Scriptures and the confessions.” Similarly, Edmund Schlink, in Theology of the Lutheran Confessions, said “Confessions in their proper sense will never be taken seriously until they are taken seriously as… the church’s exposition of Scripture.” In this article, I will seek to heed the words of Mueller and Schlink to test the Confessions against Scripture, and (hopefully) spur us on to take them seriously as the Church’s exposition of the Bible.

Welcome, this is a blog: by pastor nick.
I’ve decided to take the opportunity to write semi-regularly. I am doing so because I believe there is a need for pastors to reflect on, and articulate, what they are learning and thinking through, for their own sake and for that of the people they minister to. What I intend is that these blogs be an up-building and encouragement to the Body of Christ (myself included). Continue reading “A blog: by pastor nick.”
