- 3 General Interest
Sunday's Sermons will be posted ASAP. Without a congregation to pastor at the moment, the sermons will be more sporadic, but I encourage you to check out Wrestling with Theology on Tour (below)!
Moments of Meditation
Moments of Meditation first appeared as weekday radio broadcasts on KJOE 106.1 FM in Slayton, MN, while I served as pastor at Trinity Lutheran Church. Upon my call to Redeemer Evangelical Lutheran Church in Robbinsdale, these devotions became part of the Wrestling with Theology podcast. These devotions are from the KJOE archive and will be posted every weekday at 8am.
Daily Dose Devotions
1st Wednesday - Confessional Corner
What do Lutherans believe, teach and confess? It will all be covered here in the Confessional Corner. We will read through and study the Lutheran Confessions found in the Book of Concord.
Each episode will be a 20 minute study of these great documents. We'll see how far I get in each of these sessions.
3rd Wednesday - Digging Deeper
Digging Deeper is a 15-20 minute Bible study seeking to better understand what God says in His Word.
We are currently working through the book of Exodus.
Digging Deeper episodes run about 20 minutes and their scope will be based on how far that 20 minutes goes.
Schedule for Digging Deeper:
2nd & 4th Wednesday - Pro Wrestling America
Every longtime wrestling fan, or even a fan of wrestling of any length, has a desire for the opportunity to be able to book their own promotion. In the mid-1990s, the internet was flooded with e-wrestling federations, pro wrestling promotions run through e-mail. I successfully ran one for several years in this time. In the last several years, I have made several attempts to re-create one.
Pro Wrestling America (PWA) is one such promotion that is seeing a resurrection after more than a year in the dust. These episodes will go through the behind-the-scenes processes that go into booking a territory. PWA will have two monthly cards beginning in August 2020. The matches on the card will be highlighted through the episode, but it will also show what it takes to keep a successful wrestling promotion off the ropes.
5th Wednesday - WrestlExtravaganza
The fifth Wednesday of the month shifts our focus to the history of pro wrestling. We look at some of the great and not so great moments in pro wrestling, especially in the Golden Age of Pro Wrestling.
In different seasons of the Church Year, other programming will be posted that goes with the season.
- O Antiphons Dec 17-23 at noon
- Twelve Days' Devotions Dec 25-Jan 5 at noon
- Holy Week Responsive Prayer daily in Holy Week at noon
- Victory in Lent hourly on Holy Saturday beginning at 7pm
- Daily Ramadan Readings Daily in Ramadan at 6pm
These episodes are an audio version of the pre-publication draft of a reader's edition of The Apostolic Fathers that will hopefully be published between 2025 and 2030.
We often like to distinguish between people and groups based on the differences between them. These episodes seek to help us understand each other better by seeing what we have in common.
We begin by looking at the Catechism of the Catholic Church for what Common Ground Lutherans have with Roman Catholics.
