Once again, Concordia Seminary Preacher basketball has made news.

A couple years ago, it was ESPN.com.

Over the weekend, they made for a great little story in the Sunday St. Louis Post-Dispatch. In addition to a nice write-up on this year’s team, it included nostalgic memories of Peterson Fieldhouse and the St. Louis Hawks.

I, for one, am just old enough to remember when the St. Louis Lutheran high school “Sem games” were actually Sem games (Lutheran South class of 1992). Here’s to hoping that new bleachers will bring back at least one good tradition.

Who Has Ever Even Heard of the Missouri Synod?

Paul Raabe reflects on the label “Lutheran” and how, in some contexts, it does not communicate to most Americans. We need to be able to explain ourselves to outsiders in ways intelligible to them. Maybe a church sign should say: “A Gospel-Baptism-Lord’s Supper-Bible-Creedal-Liturgical Church - Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.” These descriptions are the markers of our church body.
