New Lutheran Quote of the Day

Just as the pastor's work of the Word of God and prayer does not relieve the royal priesthood of believers from hearing and studying the Word or the life of prayer, so little does the work of the deacon relieve the members of the priesthood of believers from exercising the works of love in their daily vocations. As the episcopal task of the pastor is to train and discipline the royal priesthood in the Word and prayer, so the deacon trains and disciplines the members of the priesthood in their daily vocations.—Dr. Kenneth Korby, The Pastoral Office and the Priesthood of Believers, Lord Jesus Christ, Will You Not Stay?, p. 370.
