New Lutheran Quote of the Day

Christ came to sanctify all of life by His sacrificial life and death; He came to snatch men from their own self-centeredness, in their worship as well as in their living, and to free them for unselfish love of their neighbor; He came to claim our bodies, too, for divine service. So even the prosaic and commonplace tasks of life have acquired a meaning that stems from the Cross. -- Earnest Koenker, *Worship in Word and Sacrament* p. 105

This was one of the points touched on at the Model Theological Conference on Worship in January. Dr. Kent Burreson of Concordia Seminary just published an article which includes his critique of the conference. http://worshipconcord.wordpress.com/
