From Pastor Toensing

Some of you have heard me say, “The more I learn the more I learn how much I don’t know.” It has been said before and by others, yet I don’t know if it has ever been originally attributed any one person. Anyway, it is true.

Books, publications, emails, blogs, magazines, periodicals—there is so much to read. There is so much information available. So much to try to keep up on. And here you are reading yet another article. There are many valuable things to read; and from your reading to learn.

But in all the items there are to read, there really is nothing that truly feeds the soul like God’s Word. Those writings that flow from and proclaim the living Word of God such as the Small Catechism are rich for us too. There is no way we will ever learn everything good that there is to know. (More...)
