Pastor McCain told me that the reading guide in the first edition of the Concordia had some problems, but I've been cruising along and not noticing any. Until I looked toward the end of the year and counted the weeks and realized that I had more weeks in Concordia than the calendar has to finish out the year. THEN I saw the problem. There are TWO week 14s and TWO week 21s listed. So, if you've been faithfully reading your BOC according to its schedule and you have the first edition, and you plan to finish up by the year's end, realize that you will need need to DOUBLE UP several times.
Right now I'm in the Formula, SD on original sin - some really, really good stuff. This week we passed the infamous garlic juice! What I continue to find utterly neglected in typical Lutheran lingo is the language of our symbols regarding original sin as an infection and a disease, a "spiritual leprosy," and how the human nature itself is what God sets to work HEALING through Holy Baptism, a healing only begun in this life and not perfected until the life to come. If there are folks who think the sanitive lingo is sub-Lutheran, they are being sub-Confessional! It's part of the pattern of sound words our Symbols give us (from AC II to the FC I!).
