The Liberal Arts and the Lifting of Hearts
Presentation by Rev. Jeff Hendrix, given at the 2023 Family Altar Conference: For Altar and For Hearth, by Return to Wittenberg at Faith Lutheran Church, Oregon, WI, May 20, 2023.

Sermon on Psalm 85 for Advent 3, Gaudete Sunday. Jesus, the "Coming One," the Word Incarnate, Truth made Flesh, is located in the most unlikely places.
