Christian rite recognized as of particular importance and significance
Rev. Carl Roth, pastor at Grace Lutheran Church in Elgin, TX, joins host Rev. Timothy Appel to study Lutheran Service Book #334, “O Lord, How Shall I Meet You.” Paul Gerhardt's Advent text helps us to prepare to welcome the Lord with joy, knowing that He is the One who prepares us to meet Him. As the Palm Sunday crowds once welcomed Jesus with palms and praises, so we continue to greet Jesus with songs of “Hosanna” as He comes to us in the Sacrament of the Altar. He has come because of His great love for us sinners, and because He has come, we are set free from the burden of sin and long for the Day when He returns to take us to our eternal home. “The Hymns of Advent'' is a series on Sharper Iron that looks at a variety of the hymns found in the Advent section Lutheran Service Book. The season of Advent prepares us for Christ's coming. The hymns of Advent teach that this is more than getting ready for Christmas; the Word of the Lord sung in hymnody helps us to receive Christ as He comes to us now in the means of grace and when He comes again in glory on the Last Day.
Rev. Dr. Christian Preus, pastor at Mount Hope Lutheran Church and School in Casper WY, joins host Rev. Timothy Appel to study Lutheran Service Book #333, “Once He Came in Blessing.” This hymn by Johann Horn takes us through the three comings of Christ. In His incarnation, Christ came to bless us as He came in humility to bear the cross for our salvation. Now, in the preaching of His Word and in the giving of His Body and Blood in the Sacrament, Christ comes to gently lead us and nourish us in His eternal life. On the Last Day, Christ will come in power and splendor for judgment; this is joyful for us as Christians because Christ has already spoken His verdict of justification to us. This truth leads us to pray that Christ would come, not only now in Word and Sacrament, but finally on the Last Day to take us to our eternal home with Him. “The Hymns of Advent'' is a series on Sharper Iron that looks at a variety of the hymns found in the Advent section Lutheran Service Book. The season of Advent prepares us for Christ's coming. The hymns of Advent teach that this is more than getting ready for Christmas; the Word of the Lord sung in hymnody helps us to receive Christ as He comes to us now in the means of grace and when He comes again in glory on the Last Day.
(Enjoy some favorite previous Sharper Iron episodes as Pastor Appel moves to a new call. A new series for Advent begins November 28!) Rev. John Bussman, pastor at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Cullman, AL joins host Rev. Timothy Appel to study Philippians 4:6-20. The church at Philippi had seen the Apostle Paul go through highs and lows during his ministry. As he writes his letter to them from prison, he proclaims to them the joy that remains theirs in Christ regardless of their circumstances. Because the LORD's return is near, Christians live differently in the world. We are freed from anxiousness and worry through the comfort that is ours in Christ. Prayer and supplication flows from our lips to our Father's throne of grace. His peace, given through the death and resurrection of Jesus, is our true guard from all evil. For that reason, our minds are occupied with all the good that He gives, as the Apostle learned and modeled from the Lord. Paul's joy continues to abound through the gift that the Philippians sent. He had learned to be content in every circumstance, whether full or hungry, whether he had plenty or he had need, for Christ was his strength. The Philippians' gift to him was another example of the fruit of faith that the Lord brought forth in them from the beginning of the gospel among them. Because of the richness of that gospel poured forth in Jesus Christ, Paul knew that they would have everything they need. That same comfort and confidence belongs to us as Christians today as we receive Christ's riches in Word and Sacrament. This is a rebroadcast from November 28, 2019. Sharper Iron, hosted by Rev. Timothy Appel, looks at the text of Holy Scripture both in its broad context and its narrow detail, all for the sake of proclaiming Christ crucified and risen for sinners. Two pastors engage with God's Word to sharpen not only their own faith and knowledge, but the faith and knowledge of all who listen.
You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt lose its savour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is good for nothing any more but to be cast out, and to be trodden on by men. Vos estis sal terrae. Quod si sal evanuerit, in quo salietur? ad nihilum valet ultra, nisi ut mittatur foras, et conculcetur ab hominibus.  You are the light of the world. A city seated on a mountain cannot be hid. Vos estis lux mundi. Non potest civitas abscondi supra montem posita,  Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but upon a candlestick, that it may shine to all that are in the house. neque accedunt lucernam, et ponunt eam sub modio, sed super candelabrum, ut luceat omnibus qui in domo sunt.  So let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. Sic luceat lux vestra coram hominibus : ut videant opera vestra bona, et glorificent Patrem vestrum, qui in caelis est.  Do not think that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets. I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. Nolite putare quoniam veni solvere legem, aut prophetas : non veni solvere, sed adimplere.  For amen I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot, or one tittle shall not pass of the law, till all be fulfilled. Amen quippe dico vobis, donec transeat caelum et terra, jota unum aut unus apex non praeteribit a lege, donec omnia fiant.  He therefore that shall break one of these least commandments, and shall so teach men, shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven. But he that shall do and teach, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. Qui ergo solverit unum de mandatis istis minimis, et docuerit sic homines, minimus vocabitur in regno caelorum : qui autem fecerit et docuerit, hic magnus vocabitur in regno caelorum. Music: Tantum ergo I. "O God who in this Sacrament hast left us a memorial of Thy passion..."

This Podcast is specifically created for and is a live excerpt of a Sunday Morning Worship which explored the concept and practice of "worship" in theory. Worship comes from Greek “Proscuneos” meaning to prostrate oneself in submission before the Ultimate acknowledging that God is more that than which nothing greater can be conceived or imagined. Yet, the conclusion maybe an internal experience of beings who are grappling with the external reality of life that signals a void within concerning the essence of life without any ultimate causation or correlational links based within the internal limitations of mind. Nevertheless, there is no denying the symbiotic and multiplicity of this deeply esoteric experience of the ultimate from a life lived within connections with the external that are within themselves beyond personal verification, only objective cooperation of what is, since reality is cogito ergo sum, a personal experience as is faith where one must work out one's own salvation as we are reminded in the Christian Bible. Essentially, the Ultimate of life is the idea of God that is an international concept and experience that is historical and close to the beginning of time if life had a beginning, which is uppermost in the thinking of beings whether they follow with strict adherence or are opposed all together with matters of faith. Hence, we will share on this podcast the concept of worship as we delve into this idea of unlocking divine intervention. This is a brief discussion on Worship with music from Phil Thompson "My Worship" and H.E.R "Hold Us Together" with adlibs and added sounds by Donte Nelson and Renaldo McKenzie who adds their vocals to the music for dynamic mix. Thank you for listening! Rev. Renaldo C. McKenzie is the creator and Host the Podcast and is ordained to the ministry of Sacrament and Word and is a Visiting Lecturer at the Jamaica Theological Seminary and several other Colleges.

November 15: Saint Albert the Great, Bishop and Doctorc. 1206–1280Optional Memorial; Liturgical Color: WhitePatron Saint of natural scientistsHe knew everything, taught Aquinas, and placed his complex mind at the Church's serviceSaint Francis de Sales wrote that the knowledge of the priest is the eighth Sacrament of the Church. If that is true, then today's saint was a sacrament unto himself. There was little that Saint Albert did not know and little that he did not teach. His mastery of all the branches of knowledge of his age was so manifest that he was called “The Great” and the “Universal Doctor.”Albert was born in Germany and educated in Italy. During his university studies, he was introduced to the recently founded Dominican Order and joined their brotherhood. While continuing his long course of formal studies, Albert was sent by his superiors to teach in Germany. He spent twenty years as a professor in various religious houses and universities until he finally obtained his degree and began to teach as a master in 1248. His most famous student was the Italian Dominican Thomas Aquinas, whose rare intellectual gifts Albert recognized and cultivated. Albert was also made the Prior of a Dominican Province in Germany, was a personal theologian and canonist to the Pope, preached a Crusade in Germany, and was appointed the Bishop of Regensburg for less than two years before resigning. Albert was neither ruthless nor politically minded, and the complex web of elites who had interests in his diocese required a bishop to display a sensitivity to power relationships which was not among Albert's skills.After his short time as a diocesan bishop, Albert spent the rest of his life teaching in Cologne, punctuated by travels to the Second Council of Lyon in 1274 and to Paris in 1277 to defend Aquinas from his theological enemies. Albert's complete works total thirty-eight volumes on virtually every field of knowledge known to his age: scripture, philosophy, astronomy, physics, mathematics, theology, spirituality, mineralogy, chemistry, zoology, biology, justice, and law. Albert's assiduous study of animals, plants, and nature was groundbreaking, and he debunked reigning myths about various natural phenomena through close personal observation. He devoured all the works of Aristotle and organized and distilled their content for his students, re-introducing the great Greek philosopher to the Western world forever and always. This life-long project of philosophical commentary was instrumental in grounding subsequent Catholic theological research on a wide and sturdy platform of critical thinking, which has been a hallmark of Catholic intellectual life ever since.Albert's comprehensive approach to all knowledge contributed to the flourishing of the nascent twelfth-century institutions of learning known as universities. The “uni” in university implied that all knowledge was centered around one core knowledge—that of God and His Truth. The modern understanding is that a “multiversity” is merely an administrative forum in which numerous branches of knowledge spread out in pursuit of their separate truths unhinged from any central focus or purpose.Saint Albert's prodigious mind never ceased to be curious. Every bit of knowledge which he culled led him to gather even more. His encyclopedic knowledge embraced reality itself as one sustained instance of God loving the world. No bifurcation, no subcategories, no “my truth” and no “your truth.” God was real and God was knowable. Reality and Truth were one for Albert and his era, and autonomous reason could be trusted to lead the honest, rational seeker to those eternal verities. Albert was beatified in 1622 and was canonized and named a Doctor of the Church in 1931.Saint Albert the Great, your knowledge of the sacred and physical sciences understood God as a total reality. Through your divine intercession, help the faithful to see reality not as divided but as an expression of the Trinitarian God, a knowable person who is accessible to reason.
