Meyer’s Musings – Introduction
By Rev. Philip G. Meyer, Pastor Emeritus
This blog is a reprise of the column I used to write Table Talk for Immanuel’s Esprit during my days as Pastor. Today I am Pastor Emeritus and that seems to demand a new title. That new title is Meyer’s Musings. Table Talk was taken from Luther’s habit of discussing current events in light of Lutheran theology around his dining room table. Students took copious notes of everything that Luther uttered. Today we might call it an “open mic.” Included in his talks were controversial subjects as well as questions that others raised on popular topics.
Pastor Sutton approached me a number of months ago asking me to publish a blog much like the old Table Talks. I am more than happy to oblige. I’ve always enjoyed writing and discussing things like this in a somewhat informal way. This blog won’t be a sermon. It will be my reaction to things happening in society as they intersect with our Lutheran faith.
These observations and opinions will be solely my own. They are not the reflections of our Pastor nor anyone else. I am solely responsible for what is published here. For that reason I chose Meyer’s Musings to indicate that this is completely my production. No one will have edited them. That lets Pr. Sutton off the hook for anything that might get him in trouble.

You can begin looking for blogs as I publish them. I’ve lots of ideas as the news is full of things that we should be thinking about as faithful Lutheran Christians. I look forward to hearing from you, and I’m sure there will be some unfavorable responses from somewhere. This is not confined to our congregation but for anyone who visits our website.
