A New Logo Promoting Old Values
The Hausvater Project enlisted liturgical artist Jonathan Mayer of Scapegoat Studio to produce a new logo. Mayer took his cue from Psalm 1, which teaches that the man who delights in the Word of the Lord is like a prosperous tree planted by streams of life-giving water. The tree, which also include a subtle cross shape reminding us that Christ was crucified for our sins, is enclosed within the outline of a church altarpiece, calling to mind “the family altar,” that is, the gathering place of a Christian family for home devotions.
Dr. MacPherson to Teach an Online Creation Apologetics Course
Dr. Ryan MacPherson, president of the Hausvater Project, will commence a new course in Creation Apologetics at Martin Luther College on August 20. Available worldwide to online learners, this course serves MLC’s newly launched M.A. in Theological Studies program and is available to both called workers and laypersons seeking to develop their understanding of confessional Lutheran theology.
