A Blessed Lenten Season

The Texas Confessional Lutherans, laymen and pastors, ordinarily meet on the fourth Thursday of January, March, May, September, and November (3rd Thursday in Nov. to avoid conflict with Thanksgiving) at Grace Lutheran Church, Brenham, Tx.

The meetings begin at 11:00 a.m. with devotions and continue until 3:00 p.m. The group breaks for a catered lunch at noon. The cost of the excellent lunch is about $6.00.

The Texas Confessional Lutherans' purpose is to foster genuine Lutheran understanding and practice of the Christian faith in the Texas District of the Lutheran Church -Missouri Synod. In order to accomplish this goal, study of the Lutheran Confessions (the official, historical doctrinal statements - see the link on the sidebar), Scripture and contemporary issues and events occupy the group.

Thought for the Day

"Quote from Schmauk"

"The real question is not what do you subscribe, but what do you believe and publicly teach, and what are you transmitting to those who come after? If it is the complete Lutheran faith and practice, the name and number of the standards is less important. If it is not, the burden of proof rests upon you to show that your more incomplete standard does not indicate an incomplete Lutheran faith."

Theodore E. Schmauk and C. Theodore Benze, The Confessional Principle and the Confessions, as Embodying the Evangelical Confession of the Christian Church, Philadelphia: 1911, p. 890.
