Does anyone else

find it odd that no Lutheran calendar in our American service books (I have no idea about elsewhere) seems to commemorate on July 1 the martyrdom of Heinrich Voes and Johann Esch?  Especially given the wonderful piece that Dr. Luther wrote to commemorate their bold witness:  "A New Song Here Shall Be Begun"?  It strikes me as a most grievous omission.

What a coincidence, I just read about these 2 in Der Lutheraner Vol. 1 No. 7. this morning on the treadmill (I'm a walker, not a runner, bad knees). It was an amazing story. Hope to meet you in Houston.

Sure hope we can connect there - maybe grab a beer together!
