New Lutheran Quote of the Day
Only from this deep understanding can the spiritual office be revitalized. How unimportant then becomes all that has grown onto this over through the modern overorganization of the church; one has only to think of the church politics with which modern bishops kill their own time and that of others. Each sermon then becomes more important than all those session which spend their time discussing big church resolutions regarding the Bonn constitution, the atom bomb, or Goethe's 200th birthday.—Hermann Sasse, We Confess: the Church, p. 82.
