Listen as we discuss God’s design for husbands and wives as well as parents and children. How can we Christians bear witness to Jesus in our homes and thus be a counter-culture?

Catechism Series, part 14

AbrahamsonIn this final part of our Catechism series with Pr. Joe Abrahamson, we discuss the “Christian Questions with their Answers.” Did Luther really compose them? Why are they not in some editions of the Catechism? How do these questions and answers help us prepare for partaking of Christ’s Body and Blood? Pr. Abrahamson also wraps up our series by saying the Catechism is not just for confirmation, but for all of life.
