Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Lurtheran rosary?

Recommended Posts

So, I saw a YouTube video where a Lutheran Pastor was talking about using prayer beads, but he explained it had nothing to do with praying to Marry and it didn't really seem like the propose of the beads was repitive prayer, but more about meditating on what the beads meant, like meditating on the cross or baptism.

 

Was it just that particual pastor or his denomination or is this practiced by all Lutherans?

And do and any other deminominations do this?

I have seen it referenced in videos as well, but have never met anyone who actually does it. I'm guessing it's a pretty small

number of Lutheran individuals who utilize the modified rosary in their personal piety.

 

Ive never seen it referenced in any Lutheran historical documents or denominational material. It appears more to be a grassroots adapting of Catholic piety.
