2017 Lutheran Pastor Desk DiaryWe recently announced that the seminary would not produce a Lutheran Pastor’s Desk Diary for 2017, since the American publishers had ceased production of the “mother” product.

We are pleased to discover and forward the news that Rev. Alex Klages of Morden/Winkler, Manitoba, has stepped in to fill the gap. “I built it for my own use upon hearing of the discontinuation of the seminary’s planner because I am very much a creature of habit, and thought it might be of use to others”, he recently wrote.

Rev. Klages’s diary lists the readings for the 1-year and 3-year lectionaries from Lutheran Service Book, commonly used in congregations of Lutheran Church–Canada and the LCMS. Note that it does not contain readings from the lectionaries used in the ELCIC/ELCA or WELS. Pastors from those church bodies may still find the diary useful, though, as it still provides space for service planning and appointments.

  1. Seems like a good idea. This one says 2017. When will the 2018 edition come out?
