NO MORE LÖHE

LÖHEWell, after translating a bit more than 200 devotions by Löhe, my only copy of his sermonettes in German is lost since Thursday, when my suitcase left for Europe and I was left behind, because I didn’t have a transit visa for Britain on my way to Vienna. (So much for their instance, that suitcases can’t go without their owners) Up to date that suitcase has not been returned and my back-up of 4 devotions that I had translated ahead of time has now run out. I am sorry that this has come to such an abrupt stop and that I can’t do anything about it. I will miss the occasional comments of Prof. Dr. Gruner of the University of Pretoria and the regular sharing of Dr.  Kirsti Kiviranta from Helsinki.  Perhaps these translations will continue if the book pitches up again. If not, that’s that then.

    Dr. Weber, if you have the title of that book, I can see if we have a copy. I may, then, be able to send you some, if not all, of it.

    • Thank you very much for this kind support and offer to help. The airlines phoned me yesterday and promised that my suitcase should be returned today or tomorrow. If that is so, then we don’t require this extra work. However if that does not happen, you might look for the book: Lob sei Dir ewig, o Jesu! (Eternal Praise to you o Jesus!) edited by A. Schuster and puplished in the Freimund Verlag, Neuendettelsau 1949. We would only need the pages starting off from after the 10th Sunday after Trinity. Thank you very much for this offer, but let’s wait and see whether the suitcase might come today or tomorrow.

        I’m glad to hear it! It will be challenging to get you a copy, since there isn’t one in the US. I think my friends at the Lutherische Theologische Hochschule Oberuersel can help if we need it, though!
