New Lutheran Quote of the Day

For the Logos is not identical with our reason; He is the speech of the Holy Ghost that circumscribes our thinking and reveals its uncertainty, so that we learn at last to look for help outside ourselves.  -- Adolf Koeberle, Quest, p. 117.

I'm sure this doesn't mean to say the Son proceeds from the Holy Spirit, does it?

No, that is definitely not what Koeberle is saying. Rather, that the divine "logic" of the Logos as the Holy Spirit reveals it to us is not simply equatable with fallen human logic.
