Winters' Spring Carnival

Thanks to seminarist Jay Winters, who presents Lutheran Carnival XLVI: Lutherade. Here you can not only read some of the best recent Lutheran blogging but also find out more about Gatorade inventor and Lutheran layman Robert Cade.

Also, this is your first threat warning reminder that the XLVIIth edition of the Lutheran Carnival of Blogs will be at Aardvark Alley. I know that many Lutheran bloggers, especially pastors, will be really busy over the next couple weeks. However, Holy Week and the celebration of our Lord's resurrection should also provide ample opportunity and incentive for some insightful writing.

Please be ready to submit your own work or suggest that of other confessional Lutherans, according the the general submission guidelines. Again, note that I encourage 3rd party submissions of good posts from those whose humility (or absent-mindedness) precludes self-submission.

Home Brewing Blog

Since I'm hopelessly addicted to homebrewing now, I've started a new blog to keep everyone updated. I'll cross post good ones to PDD if you'd like. Stop on by this Kantor's Brewery anytime. We'll always have a fresh pint on tap!

Saint Patrick's Day

or "Kiss Me, I'm Christian"

St. Pat's Beer HatWhat better place than here at PDD to remind folks that the real St. Patrick wouldn't at all be pleased with the riotous living and drunkenness that too often marks his feast day. The United States, especially, stands guilty of commemorating one of Christianity's great missionaries with excessive alcohol consumption and generally stupid behavior.

So if you're going to hoist a pint or two in honor of Padraig, try to keep in mind your vocation and the example you give to those around you. And if you'd like to find out a bit more about the saint, please see the commemoration of Saint Patrick at Aardvark Alley.

Quote from the Concordia Theological Seminary (Ft. Wayne) Residence Handbook


There is a “no smoking” policy inside ALL buildings on campus. All smokers who wish to smoke may do
so outside, preferably away from the sides of the buildings with windows. Alcohol may be consumed in
the residence hall by students who are 21 years of age or older. Moderation is to be encouraged because
drunkenness is not appropriate for men pursuing the ministry. (See Eph. 9:18 and I Tim. 3:3.)
Alcohol served to minors is prohibited.

'tis good to be Lutheran my friends!
