Farther Along

Farther Along is an eight-week series of chapel devotions based on Luther's Small Catechism.

Each devotion consists of a reading from Luther's Small Catechism, a reading from Luther's Large Catechism (or another of the Lutheran Confessions), a Scripture reading and commentary on the Scripture reading. The series can be found below, but it is also part of the Wrestling with Theology podcast and will be delivered to your podcasting platform every weekday.
