An excellent witness

I’m finally writing a letter of thanks for the wonderful Lutheran Witness. We have been getting it for years. We read other people’s responses, so it’s good we are finally responding.

I saved a 20-year-old Witness—not quite so fancy paper in those days. I gave it to our former young pastor, and he was so happy to keep it for his files. It was about the ascension of Jesus.

Dr. Paul L. Maier’s articles are very interesting, and the June/July story, “Luther’s Journey with Paul,” was so very good.

The Lifeline stories—November 2007, “Let God Love You” (I’m 79; my husband, 82)—was so nice that I shared it with my sisters and friends. [We also appreciated] the January 2007 Lifeline story, “Sought”—“You did not choose me, but I chose you” (John 15:16).

I could go on—-what an excellent witness The Lutheran Witness is. Thanks to all the hardworking people there.

Oh, the jokes are good too: “A merry heart does good like medicine” (Prov. 17:22).

About seven years ago, you had an article about the Athanasian Creed. I gave it away and later was sorry. People ask me about the creed. If possible, could you send me a copy, but if it’s too difficult, I understand.

Editor’s note: The story of which Mr. and Mrs. Norderud speak, “I, Athanasius” by Rev. Gordon A. Beck, appeared in the June 1998 issue of The Lutheran Witness. We were able to provide the Norderuds with a copy of the story, and we have also posted it on our new “Classic Witness” department online. Click here to read the article.
