Greetings and Welcome to another post...

Hello everyone. Welcome to the blog for The Lutheran Difference.

Alright, so what's the Lutheran Difference all about? I'm sitting here and asking myself how we got where we are and for the life of me, I can't remember how we started down this road. What I can say is this...

It was a radio program that led me to the Lutheran Faith. There are several that I listened to, most notably the shows on KFUOam.org, the official radio station of the Lutheran Church Missouri-Synod. It was also Pastor Tom Baker, host of the show Law and Gospel on KFUO that suggested that every church should have a radio show of some kind.

So I can tell you why we did this, but the how escapes me. We wanted our show to be about the Lutheran Faith, be available to everyone beginning with the congregation, other congregations in the LCMS churches in Central Florida, and the surrounding area. We also wanted the show to be topical about what is going on around our area and include other church bodies in the discussions. Eventually, we'd like to see this make it on local radio as a call in show!

Imagine us band of yayhoos with a live call in show. God willing, we will.

In the meantime, take a look around, subscribe to the show in iTunes or RSS, or click on ask the pastor on the home page to ask any question you'd like or to suggest topics for the show.

Matt,

Very good first production. Some music mix in the intro and with fade in and out of the interview/discussion is quite soothing and makes it worth listening again.

I got some experience in radio (I use to run my program called Cruz Control) and based on my experience, this first one of yours is a delightful piece. BTW the last part of the show was thoroughly edifying, we are on the offensive, that was good food for thought.

Thanks for your comments... They are deeply appreciated because we really don't know what we're doing, particularly me as producer and host. I've never done this before, ever, and it's good to know I'm at least on the right track.

Any advice is appreciated. Thankyou. :)
