In Review: Creed II

Thursday, December 13, 2018

Fatherhood rings true Reaching a goal, like becoming boxing’s World Heavyweight Champion, isn’t always enough. Creed II (2018) continues the story of Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan). He is the son of Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers)—the result of an adulterous relationship—who, with the help of Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), Apollo’s boxing rival, eventual trainer and friend, gains notoriety in the ring without using his father’s name. He eventually accepts the Creed name and legacy and fights as Adonis Creed. One of the strongest themes of the first Creed (2015) film was ...

Table Talk: Draw Us Up, O Lord

Wednesday, December 12, 2018

“Thou hast made us for Thyself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee.” These words, taken from the writings of St. Augustine, are a reminder that no one finds true peace outside of God. That doesn’t stop us from trying, though; we are all of us restlessly searching for meaning. Within every person, there is a deep understanding—acknowledged or not—that something is wrong with the world. That something is wrong with us. We are sinners, and the Law written on our hearts reveals to each of us ...

In Review: Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Thursday, November 29, 2018

Losing the magic Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) is the second Harry Potter prequel by director David Yates under the Fantastic Beasts title penned for the screen by J.K. Rowling. It continues the story started in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) which introduced audiences to the character Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), a mild-mannered wizard and cryptozoologist with an interest in mythical and fantastical magical beasts who reluctantly finds himself drawn into a byzantine plot to stop the dangerous Voldemort-esque Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp). Rowling and Yates set ...

Crossroads 2018: Nigeria and Bible Translation

Monday, November 5, 2018

By: Travis Heide Since returning from a two-week discernment trip to Nigeria this past June, I’ve been asked a load of questions regarding that country. What animals live there? What are the road conditions? What did we eat—and what were we able to eat? (Anything and most of everything.) How was the weather? (Surprisingly mild though we went during the rainy season.) One question the Crossroads West Africa trip with Lutheran Bible Translators (LBT) prepared me to answer is this: Why is Bible translation important? It is a relevant question, considering that ...

Our Great and Priestly Commission

Friday, November 2, 2018

By: Timothy Teuscher It is perhaps surprising to note that Matthew 28:19-20—“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you”—is never referenced in our Lutheran Confessions in the way we usually do today. You know, as the “Great Commission” which Christ has given to His Church. Instead, it is quoted in connection with our Lord’s institution of Holy Baptism and the Office of the Holy ...
