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

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.


But, we need your help to make Wittenberg Trail a success. Please encourage your family and friends to join us. 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.

Have a theological (church) question that you would love to have a pastor answer? Visit the group, Ask the Pastor. First search the discussions to see if your question has already been answered; if not, add a discussion with the question in it.


Are you a Lutheran pastor who is interested in answering these questions? Click here.

Which Way???

I once read a story about a man that was off on a safari deep in the jungles of Africa. He had a knowledgeable guide with him as they made their way through the dense jungle.  But the going was slow and hard as they had to cut their way through the thick jungle. Often it was so thick and dense that he could not tell where they were going.  He didn't even know if they were going the right way.  Nor could he tell what danger lie ahead waiting in the bush.After a period of time, worn out and…See More
