New Lutheran Quote of the Day

We are suffering confusion to a great extent because of the loss of our common spiritual and theological language.  The language of pastoral theology and the care of souls is predominantly the language of the personality and social sciences.  We are becoming poorer and poorer.  Similarly, much of the language of piety has been taken over by the language of baptistified charismatics.  The language of the catechism, of hymnody, of the liturgy, and of Bible translations is in such flux that fewer and fewer learn it by heart. -- Dr. Kenneth Korby, The Pastoral Office and the Priesthood of Believers, Lord Jesus Christ, Will You Not Stay? p. 334.
