Pastor Fenker is the Lutheranest guy we know in HT when it comes to theology. Like, it's almost scary sometimes how Lutheran he is. He even looks like our historic Lutheran father, Philip Melanchthon! So we figured that the Dean of Theology for Higher Things should have a column to share his Lutheran thoughts with the world so we can become more Lutheraner, too. On the DEAN'S LIST, we'll learn about theology and whatever he wants to teach us. But mostly we'll read about Jesus, for us. Because that's what being Lutheran is really all about.

Jesus ain’t done yet. He’s not. Sometimes we think He is, though. We think: Jesus died, Jesus rose, and Jesus ascended. Done deal. Work completed. He does say, “It is finished” on the Cross, after all....
