Thoughts from Calvary member Aaron Levenhagen who is currently a student at the St Louis Seminary.

I’ve titled this newsletter the Levenhagen λογοι…Greek for “words.” Why? Well, there’s the catchy alliteration, but that’s not really the reason. And yes, words are the focus of my days—reading words on pages, wrestling with words of theological thought, writing lots of words in papers—but that’s not really it either. I was thinking of a more significant and eternal Word, as we sing in the great Martin Franzmann hymn:

Thy strong Word bespeaks us righteous
Bright with Thine own holiness
Glorious now, we press toward glory
And our lives our hopes confess
Alleluia, alleluia!
Praise to Thee who light dost send!
Alleluia, alleluia!
Alleluia without end!

This is the Word. I hope that it will be a reminder to me of why we’ve embarked on this little adventure: to proclaim the λογος—the personal, incarnate, strong Word of God, Jesus Christ—to all whom God puts within our reach. May the Holy Spirit daily reveal to each us anew Jesus Christ, the Word of God, as we study the written Word of God, as the Word of God is preached to us, and as God speaks His words of promise to us in the Sacraments. God’s blessings as you listen to the strong Word.
