His comments on my posts are worth their weight in gold, and far superior to the original blog's posts. I am saying this because it is true, not to garner more tidbits from his sui generis pen (or keyboard).
I hope this bouquet of maudlin hero-worship doesn't embarrass him...but, ah heck, I don't care.
He is the most brilliant and friendly, and kindly (had to have three for a Trinitarian effect) Lutheran layman on the North American continent; heck, maybe the entire western hemisphere.
I am honored and blessed to call him friend.
The Lord is good.
