Episode 69: Lutherans You Should Know - Philipp Nicolai

On this week's segment of "Lutherans You Should Know", Pastor Riley relates the story of Philipp Nicolai, a German Lutheran pastor and hymnodist who wrote hymns and served as pastor in the midst of a plague and other hardships. Surrounded by death, Nicolai demonstrated the need for Christ, not just on Sunday, not just once a month or two or three times a year, but every single day. There is a tendency in our culture to not think about death, to avoid it and to hide those who are sick and dying. But where does one turn when death confronts us on every side, like it did Nicolai as he buried his parishioners daily? There is only place we can turn, only one Savior from death, Christ Jesus our Lord.
