Honor, Once Again

What connection does little Johnny throwing a fit in a grocery store in order to get his mother to buy him a candy bar have with popular culture? Much in every way, I say. “In this demand for reverence to parents, the fifth commandment lays the foundation for the sanctification of the whole social life, inasmuch as it thereby teaches us to acknowledge a divine authority in the same” (Gustav Oehler). We will explore a bit of "the sanctification of the whole social life" together this Sunday. See you there!
