Table talk in the Old Latin School

Sitting at my father´s table is one of my favorite memories. There was plenty of space. So that not just nine kids – with three grandmothers – enjoyed my mother´s gastronomic gifts. There was the mission secretary Hanns Gnauk, who … Continue reading

“While my guitar gently weeps…”

It´s a first for me. I´m first at “English Stammtisch”. The others are coming. Hopefully. Ever since Glaubigs said our meetings will resume this Thursday, I couldn’t wait. It´s been more than a year since my last session there. Now, … Continue reading

Die Elbwiesen blühen…

Laufen auf den Wiesen macht Spaß. Theoretisch. Sonst ist es nämlich ein ziemlicher Schlepp. Die Knochen wollen nicht wie sie sollen und fünf Kilometer sind immerhin doppelt so lange wie damals der militärische Standard von 2,4. Jetzt im Sommer ist … Continue reading

Mourning in lonely exile here… (LSB 357)

Good weather, friends and neighbours…

Good morning from Wittenberg – or as we say here: “Moin, moin!”, but that´s the elaborate and somewhat redundant version. Most stick to the monosyllabic “Moin!” It´s promising to be another of my favorite days. Now that its rained, I´m … Continue reading

Hallelujah: Jesus lives + reigns forever + Hallelujah

All the world rejoices and sings: “Christ is risen. He´s risen indeed!” That´s the Easter jubilee all along – ever since he rose victorious from the dead and appeared to his disciples like Mary, then to that couple from Emmaus, … Continue reading
