    What a wonderful blessing that God uses all his people to expand his Kingdom! This article makes me think of Philip Melancthon, who though not an ordained pastor, was encouraged by Luther to use his preaching gifts to up lift God’s people. What a wonderful thing it is that we in the Missouri Synod have recognized this and have created the office of Licensed Deacon, not to usurp the office of pastor but to supplement and extend it! May the Gospel move forward and may we always celebrate and allow the free use of all of God’s people’s gifts!
