You've got it. Thanks so much.
Don't know where I'll be able to record again.

Section 24 was nicely read and has just one thing that needs to be attended to:

Time: 06:53 "children, as Psalm lxxviii. says, "How" Reading has Psalm "48" instead of Psalm "78".

Ugh, I'm so grateful for Arabic numerals. I'll get this resolved tomorrow.

I didn't wait for this to be put into the MW to go ahead and listen to it. It is definitely PL OK. I went ahead and updated its status on the MW to PL OK; I hope I didn't mess up the works. :)

Thanks for the help with the MW. Laptop is dead and it will be few more days before I'm up and running again.

Section 20 has one question mark:

Time: 03:10 "this lust, eating were as meritorious as fasting," I generally do not pick on pronunciation, but you might check on that of the word "meritorious". It sounds like it is missing a syllable. I will leave the final decision up to you.

Section 21 is ready to go...PL OK.

When I was listening to Luther's comments on fasting, I reminded myself that diabetes did not enter into the decision about fasting back then.

Only ten sections to go and they are all short. Onward!

Randy and Kristin! I'm so sorry I missed getting these in the MW :oops:

All updated now, which means I'd better get my section done -- can't have the dedication coming in last. :roll:

Section 31 is nicely read and PL OK.


Every once in a while, Luther says things that definitely reflect his times. For instance, speaking of self-serving meekness:

"The one has a beautiful splendor, and there is nothing back of it. This we practice toward our friends and those who do us good and give us pleasure with goods, honor and favor, or who do not offend us with words nor with deeds. Such meekness irrational animals have, lions and snakes, Jews, Turks, knaves, murderers, bad women." Hmmm.

These four sections were well read and are PL OK.

Some hard hitting comments by Luther can be found in these sections, especially those reflecting his disdain for papal excesses. I marvel at the courage it took to publicly state his concerns.
