Never Disappointed

Checked in with the Thinking Fellows after a long hiatus. I found it a refreshing pause in the day, so I think I am going to become a regular again. As a recently retired Lutheran pastor, my question has been, “now what?” Thinking Fellows either gives me some answers or gets my mind off on some even more interesting questions.

Good discussion

They use an informal discussion format that gives you an understanding of the theology. If you want to delve more deeply, the additional references are provided for those so inclined.

These guys deliver the goods

No therapeutic moralistic deism here. This is biblical: Law - our sin - and Gospel - God’s good and gracious gift in Jesus. What a gift to the church and those wounded by the church. This is bible, history, culture, and theology in an honest package. Just what this weary soul needs.
