The Lord’s Word is always going forth in the world. It is part of the joy of a pastor to be a part of this Word going forth. I hope to try to log these attempts at helpfulness here (and hopefully cut down on the stuff on facebook). We’ll see how it works.
Preaching at Hope
This was a busy preaching week at Hope. God be praised for the Incarnation of our Lord Jesus.
- The Preaching of the Angels (Luke 2:1-14, Christmas Eve, Pr. Wolfmueller)
- The Word Became Flesh (John 1:1-4, Christmas Day, Pr. Flamme)
- What is that to you? (John 21:19-24, St. John’s Day, Pr. Flamme)
Isaiah 12 is a beautiful on Isaiah 12, Isaiah on Christmas, was published this week. It was the final of four Isaiah Bible Studies I was able to write for the Christmas season.

Rightly Divided Daily Meditation Blog
Today (Tuesday) was my day to write. 2 Kings 7 is a particularly interesting chapter with the four leprous men plundering the abandoned Syrian camp. Their conscience catches up to them, and they inform the starving city, and the Lord provides rescue for the people in the most improbable way. Read and mediate here.
We took the week off of Table Talk. I’ll add a few more links next week.
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and Lord’s Blessings,
