Altar Echo | Sermon of the Week Podcast

Religion & Spirituality Podcasts

In the Lutheran tradition, worship revolves around Word (proclaimed at the pulpit) and Sacrament (shared at the baptismal font and the altar). The Word of God and the sermon are the echo of the sacraments' grace and promise in Holy Baptism and Holy Communion. Altar Echo is Pastor Andy Smith's weekly sermon podcast from St. John's Church, Lakeville, MN. PA is a pastor in the ELCA tradition of Lutheran Christianity. He is a progressive thinker and theologian. And, once in a while, his Minne-soota accent sneaks in. Love God and your neighbor more as you listen to Altar Echo. Soli Deo gloria.
