Publisher Description

This sermon was delivered by the Rev. Donna Herzfeldt-Kamprath (her portions are in regular print) and the Rev. Joan (Lundgren) Beck (her portions are in italic print) at the closing worship of the 35th Seminex Reunion at LSTC, June 25, 2009. One evening during the 1971 Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod (LCMS) Milwaukee Convention Doc Caemmerer said to John and Ernestine Tietjen and Arthur C. Repp, "The two views about Lutheranism that are in contention right now are as different as a box is different from a platform. The Preus people think of Lutheranism as a box. You have to be in the box to be a Lutheran. The box tells you what you can believe and what you can't believe. If you don't agree on the truth in the box, you have to get out. But Lutheranism is really a platform on which to stand. The Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions that witness to what they teach are the ground of our life together. They are the platform on which we stand to witness to what we believe. As rule and norm the Scriptures help us make sure that we speak the Word of God when we witness. The Confessions free us up to witness to what is the heart of our faith, Jesus Christ, and the good news that we are justified by faith in him." (from Memoirs in Exile, Tietjen)
