About

I am a man, a husband, a father, an ordained minister in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, and a parish pastor.  Roughly in that order, chronologically.  I have been blogging for over a decade on this domain name, and my primary interest is the application of Biblical Christianity to our everyday lives.  How does faith bear itself out in a rapidly changing culture?  What can it look like (as opposed to what must it look like)?

Since Christianity is a communal experience, my goal is to interact here.  To have conversations – dialogue not monologue.  I post my thoughts, observations, questions, musings – and hope that they spark something in you that seeks engagement.  I don’t expect you to agree.  But my hope is that in our exchange of differences of experience and opinion, God might be glorified, and all of us might be grown towards him.

Welcome.

    Hi Pastor Nelson,

    Below is a link you might be interested in. I came across this today following a link from Chad Bird’s Flying Scroll blog. It brought to mind the question relative to Hitler you raised at the Reformation Seminar last month.
