Changes to this site Last Updated 03/18



To keep the WT in place, we have to bring back visitors to the site. One of the problems with the old site was the "signal to noise" ratio -- the good lutheran content v.s. the "jokes", "silly comments", and "political topics" that predominated the old site. Please make an effort to post only Lutheran or Christian content on the site.

Lutheran Questions

Well it is that time of year again and we need your help. If you would like to see WT continue to be here on the web, please donate now. It is renewal time and your donation will keep us going for another year. Thank you for your support. Please click the link found on the right hand banner to make your donation.

WELCOME to the Wittenberg Trail! It's a joy to have you join us and to be a part of the wonderful things that are going on here. We encourage you to make this your home for all things Lutheran, from discussions, to information, to new publications from publishing houses. The Wittenberg Trail is here for you, so jump in and let your voice be heard.

To keep the WT going, we need to have people want to return to the site. One of the problem that seems to be happening is the "signal to noise" ratio, that is the content of good Lutheran theology and conversation v.s. the "jokes", "silly comments", and "political topics" that seem to be creeping back in more and more. Please make an effort to post only Lutheran or Christian content on the site.

 

But, we need your help to make Wittenberg Trail a success. Please encourage your family and friends to join. If your church has a website, please consider linking us to your website.

By the way "Thank You" to those who contribute to help keep Wittenberg Trail on the internet, your support is appreciated.

"Strive to Enter through the Narrow Door" (Luke 13:22-30)

“Strive to Enter through the Narrow Door” (Luke 13:22-30)Suppose there’s a big party, a grand banquet that you’ve heard about, and you really want to go and be there for this great event. So you go to the banquet hall, and you see a door there, and you walk up to it and try the handle. It doesn’t budge. The door seems to be locked. “Okay, no problem, I’ll try another door.” Which you do. You pull on the handle, it doesn’t move, same thing. Hmm. What’s the problem? “Oh, wait! Let me see if…See More

How much can God take?

Even though I have a similar Ask already in progress, I'm going to ask this here, just for my own understand and clarification.  I don't handle life well; I sure don't handle stress well.  I also have a chronic condition that makes me tired all the time, exacerbating my already poor ability to handle the trouble of life.  Thing is, sometimes I get really angry about it and I curse God.  I will spend days murmuring against Him, really bad.  The world "blasphemy" would be appropriate here.  I…See More
