Catechism Series, part 2

AbrahamsonWe continue our Catechism Series with Pr. Joe Abrahamson. In part 2, we look at using the Catechism and how it is organized. What does Pr. Abrahamson mean when he says Luther’s Small Catechism has a “3 x 3” structure? We also begin discussing God’s Law and the Ten Commandments.
