I was never a big fan of The Lutheran Witness - until recently, that is! It has had a makeover, both in terms of its appearance and layout and in its theological relevance, rigor, and readability.
The current issue not only has a great piece by Rev. Christopher Hall about the Athanasian Creed, there is also the president's column here. The Reverend President Harrison has done the church a great service with this article.
There is a lot of misunderstanding about what preaching is and what preaching isn't.
Preaching is not the imparting of information (though there is certainly a didactic (teaching) element in preaching). Preaching is not entertainment (though there is certainly a way of delivering a sermon that is not tedious or trying to the hearer). Preaching is not there to make you feel good about yourself or improve your self-esteem. Nor is preaching "about the gospel." Rather, preaching "is" the gospel - as both Dr. Sasse and his pupil President Harrison remind us - not to mention St. Peter whose Acts 3 sermon is highlighted in this article.
One of my classmates - a friend and fellow LCMS pastor from a different district than in which I serve - has gotten a lot of grief from his parishioners because he preaches too much using the word "you." His hearers do not like it when he tells them "you are sinners" and "you need to repent" (though they do not apparently have a problem when he also tells them "you are forgiven"). They even reported this to the district president who did not defend this pastor, but rather took the other side of this issue. My friend and colleague, a faithful preacher of Christ and of the gospel of forgiveness, was scolded for doing too much "you" preaching.
Thanks be to God that President Harrison understands and articulates that real Christian preaching is "you" preaching.
