I was privileged and honored to lead last week’s Lenten Vespers service. My Pastor gave me a sermon to put into more modern English. I thought I’d post it here. Enjoy.
Sermon by: Henry Sieck (Circa 1913)
Edited/Modernized by: Matthew Fenn
Delivered: Wednesday of Laetare (Lent 4), 2013
Since today is Ash Wednesday and the beginning of the Lenten season, I thought it might be good to post some links things I’ve found interesting on this subject.
Here is a great introductory two minute video:
Pastor Mark Buetow of Higher Things has a great article called “Praise the Lord! Lent Ain’t About YOU!”
Here is an awesome version of “Te Deum”.
Te Deum Laudamus, is an early Christian hymn of praise. The title is taken from its opening Latin words, rendered literally as “Thee, O God, we praise”. Authorship is traditionally ascribed to Augustine on the occasion of the baptism of Ambrose.

And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this? And the multitude said, This is Jesus [...]
Well, starting tomorrow we are in Holy Week. This is the week of the year we think about Christ’s final week on earth. (And it roughly happened at this time of the year as well). Anyway… here are the readings for this week. Each set of readings is for what happened on that day. I [...]
Here are some points to consider, making a case for corporate (think congregational) worship on Sunday as being a New Testament teaching.
1. Jesus made congregational worship his custom.
And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up. And as was his [...]
The following is a beautiful rendition of Psalm 65 from the Scottish Psalter (Circa 1650).
To the chief Musician, A Psalm and Song of David. 8,6,8,6 ^1Praise waits for thee in Sion, Lord: to thee vows paid shall be. ^2O thou that hearer art of pray’r, [...]
Is Christmas a day Christians can celebrate with a good conscience, or is Christmas condemned in the Scriptures? Whilst I understand that there used to be a Pagan festival on Dec. 25th, and whilst I also understand that “Christmas” today is a really just a consumer driven, money grab, those are not the things that [...]
