Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Those who forsake the task of proclaiming the gospel of the forgiveness of sins in order to devote themselves to a different message are in the process of rendering themselves quite useless and irrelevant as church leaders. -- Dr. Henry Hamann, *On Being a Christian* p. 121

Not quite on this quote (at least I hope you end up not thinking of this quote) - but how do I get set up to upload my sermons on historiclectionary ? I've got an identity (confessionalgadfly) but I didn't see anywhere where I could upload stuff.

So then what is a useful and relevant church leader? Thanks for letting me ask questions of your blog. You are more tolerant than some Eastern Orthodox church leaders, far, far more tolerant.

Eric, I think you have to click the admin button and then go from there?

Olympiada, A useful and relevant church leader is one who never forgets that his office is to support and further the preaching of forgiveness.
