Seminary professor August Pieper presented this message at the first gathering of the Southeast Wisconsin District of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Wisconsin and Other States, assembled at St. John’s Lutheran Church, Burlington, Wisconsin, 10-16 July 1918. Six decades later the paper was translated by James Langebartels and several others at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary. They were students in the Theological German class of Prof. John Jeske. The paper was presented to the Pastor-Teacher-Delegate Conference of the Southwestern Conference of the Michigan District, assembled at Grace Lutheran Church, St. Joseph, Michigan, 21 January 1991, by Pastor James Langebartels. It was later included in The Wauwatosa Theology 2:283-312. This specific edition of the paper appears in connection with a Seminary anniversary project. Changes made to help a modern reader involve formatting, pronouns, punctuation and page numbers. -Pastor Tom Jeske, Omaha, NE (August 2013)
