Speaking of Faith: Did the Resurrection Really Happen?
by Katie Hill on April 5th, 2021
It’s kind of an important question. I mean, if the resurrection didn’t happen, what on earth are we Christians doing? It’s not like it’s gaining us any power or money or anything. But if the resurrection did happen, then why is it that so many people in the world don’t believe it?  Read More

Speaking of Faith: Why Be Lutheran?
by Katie Hill on February 19th, 2021
Jesus alone saves me--no “buts” about it. He saves me by grace alone without any works or merit on my part. What He did on the cross is received by faith alone--not by works--so I can’t mess it up. I didn’t have to give my heart to Jesus. I didn’t have to be rebaptized or speak in tongues. I didn’t have to make Him the Lord of my life. He did it all for me! He kept the Law in my place and then died the death that I deserve. Everything that He did with His holy life and His bitter sufferings and death comes to me in His gifts as a gift.  Read More

Speaking of Faith: The Liturgy Is Tried and True Evangelism
by Katie Hill on February 3rd, 2021
To an outsider looking in, the historic liturgy of the Church might seem like something out of the Dark Ages, particularly in a culture that tries to make everything “relevant” or “relatable”. Liturgy, simply put, is a pattern of worship. Lutherans understand liturgy as God serving His people by the proclamation of the Gospel and administration of the Means of Grace, and in response we get to offer thanks and praise to Him. Good liturgy is evangelistic by design.  Read More

Speaking of Faith: Is Faith Reasonable?
by Katie Hill on November 30th, 2020
Skeptics like Dr. Dawkins argue that there is no convincing evidence for God. But what would constitute “convincing evidence?” How can an infinite, transcendent Being who is beyond the confines of time and space show His existence to us finite creatures who are bound by time and space? The only way would be for God to occupy time and space, which He did. “The Word became Flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:14).   Read More

Speaking of Faith: Can You Be Rational and Still Believe in Miracles?
by Katie Hill on September 30th, 2020
Many who deny the possibility of miracles often assume that the laws of nature can never be altered. So whenever a miracle is said to have occurred, it automatically gets placed into the "myth" category. An investigation simply isn't necessary. God or no God, everything has a natural explanation, and no amount of evidence can support the supernatural. Does this sound reasonable? On the contrary, it's as closed-minded as it gets!  Read More

Speaking of Faith: Answering the Knock
by Katie Hill on September 21st, 2020
There they are! You spot them. White shirts. Black ties. Handsome young men. Sometimes they’re lovely young girls. They come in pairs. Walking down your street. Or riding bicycles on the sidewalk. Walking right up to your house! Then to your door. The doorbell rings. You open the door. And the first words out of their mouth are: “Hello, we’re from The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints (LDS).” Mormons!  Read More

Speaking of Faith: The Backstory Behind Holy Cross Day
by Katie Hill on September 14th, 2020
This One, Jesus is true Man like you, born of the Virgin Mary, but also is true God, begotten of the Father before all eternity. This One suffered under Pontius Pilate (a real governor in Roman history).Then, this Jesus was crucified on an actual wooden cross--whether we have it or not-- and then He died and was buried. After three days, this Jesus who died on Good Friday, rose again.   Read More

Speaking of Faith: The Engagement Triangle
by Katie Hill on September 3rd, 2020
For decades, the "how to" of sharing the Gospel to friends and family (or even complete strangers) was something that ate at me. I was trained in evangelism (a fancy word for getting the evangel or Good News out to others) at one of our LCMS universities and since then I studied many approaches for witnessing or sharing the faith, but something was always bugging me.  Read More

Speaking of Faith: Come and See
by Katie Hill on August 24th, 2020
Though we may introduce our friends to Jesus, Jesus never needs to be introduced to our friends. He sees them and knows them through and through long before we even thought of asking them to come meet Him. He's waiting for them.  Read More

Speaking of Faith: One Hundred Percent Free--One Hundred Percent Servant
by Katie Hill on August 18th, 2020
Christ loved others. He put them first. He loved them more than He loved Himself. He loved you more than He loved Himself. He loved those around you, too. He gave up His life for all. He is Lord of all, and He served everyone. You are completely free, and you serve others...in Him.   Read More

Speaking of Faith: Being Lutheran in a Public School
by Katie Hill on August 6th, 2020
Despite the reality that public schools are often hostile to Christianity, I openly practice my Lutheran faith in my public school. Actually, it works out better than most people would think.   Read More

Speaking of Faith: Campus Christian
by Katie Hill on July 29th, 2020
As you gain independence at school away from home, it is critical that you remain united with others in the one Christian faith and recognize your special "watermarked" vocations.  Read More

Speaking of Faith: The Curious Case of Agnosticism
by Katie Hill on July 22nd, 2020
Agnostics may think they have the upper hand by remaining undecided, but there is no neutrality when it comes to Jesus. You are either for Him or against Him. Period.   Read More

Speaking of Faith: Third Article Evangelism
by Katie Hill on July 8th, 2020
If you know your catechism and the biblical texts, which your catechism correctly summarizes, then you know that getting someone to make a decision for Jesus is not the goal of evangelism. Instead, the goal of evangelism is for God to raise someone from the dead and that doesn't happen as a result of someone making a decision for Jesus.   Read More

by Katie Hill on June 11th, 2020
You might take infant Baptism for granted; and when someone tells you it didn’t count, you might not know what to say. Your memorization of the Small Catechism may vanish in a puff of panic. Fear not! Here are some of the most common arguments against infant Baptism, and how to respond.  Read More

Speaking of Faith: The Irony of Being "Lutheran"
by Sandra Madden on May 27th, 2020
The Reformation and being “Lutheran” isn’t about any of that. The irony of the Reformation and “daring to be Lutheran” is that it’s only about one thing. One person. Not Martin Luther. And not you.  Read More

Speaking of Faith: Wimpily Weak, Imbecilicly Foolish, and Incredibly Effective
by Sandra Madden on May 27th, 2020
Don't you sometimes wish God had saved you by some method more palatable to modern sensibilities? Then you wouldn't have to be so embarrassed by your faith.   Read More
