Today we officially welcome two assisting editors to The Lutheran Missal, both of whom have substantially contributed to the project over the past two or three years.
The Reverend Andrew Harris has served as pastor of Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church in Clinton, WI, since graduating from Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne in 2018. Prior to that, he studied at Concordia University Wisconsin in Mequon, Wisconsin. He is married to Olivia and together they have three wonderful children.
Dr. Jonathan Wessler is the kantor and organist at First Lutheran Church in Boston, MA, having previously studied at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, the University of Notre Dame, and the Eastman School of Music. He and his wife Joy have three school-age children. Jonathan’s life revolves around music according to the liturgical calendar. In addition, he plans and organizes concert series and Bach Vespers services, conducts the church choir, and still finds time to add other accomplishments to his slate.
Pr. Harris and Dr. Wessler have labored tirelessly on The Lutheran Missal for the past two years and are currently assisting in the editing of the temporal lectionary (which is nearly complete). It is long overdue that they be officially introduced and welcomed to the project.
Internship for The Lutheran Missal
This semester we also welcome Conner Walts, a pre-sem student and senior at Indiana State University. In the last year, Conner was chiefly responsible for adding Würzburg c. 700 and Murbach c. 800, the two oldest extant Western lectionaries to our database.
By special arrangement with the Indiana State University, Conner is now serving an official internship for The Lutheran Missal. In addition to other duties, Conner records the minutes for our weekly editors’ sessions. If anyone else is interested in a similar internship, Conner would be happy to explain how he worked out the arrangement with his university. Email him at c o n n e r . w a l t s @ a t t . n e t
