This is Lawrence Rast's blog. It deals with stuff that interests him--especially American Religious history, Lutheranism, the Pennsylvania Railroad, obscure music, and Africa.
Wow. Great find. Thanks for posting it.
You know Tietjen, apart from the issues involved, is alternately very appealing in this video and very arrogant.
I think you may have just nailed it.
Agree with Pr. Alms' assessment: both appealing and arrogant. Perhaps that is the blessing/curse of charisma.Another observance: the modern LCMS custom of having Synod leaders begin addresses to Convention with testimonies of their faith. The reading of a "laundry list" of believed tenets to the delegates is seen with Dr. Tietjen. Convention delegates continue to see it done by LCMS leaders 35+ years later.LTZ
