Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:10-13 KJV

Join the Booze Brothers Growing Band - Not Just Glende, Ski, and , but WELS Pastor Ben Sadler Too. Bad Theology on Tap

Tullian (the adulterer) fan Ben Sadler posted this:

I stumbled across your blog because tullian (sic) mentioned you. This is great stuff! I’m a Lutheran (WELS) pastor in Orlando, FL. And I just got done reading “Jesus + nothing = everything.” God’s Word, Tullian’s book, and blogs like this have opened my eyes again to the incredible power of the gospel. I just preached on Pentecost. And my eyes were opened to see what I have often missed. The wind, tongues, and every the strong message of the law are all an important part of pentecost (sic), but it was the preaching of the gospel that was the power of God. It was the gospel that did everything! More than anything I need a personal reformation of believing again in the power of the gospel to do all things!

But if all else fails - booze.

"Theology on Tap" is an open discussion led by Pastor Ben Sadler on life's biggest questions, like "Can I really know God exists?" "If God is good why does he allow suffering?" 

Every first Wednesday of the Month, starting February 3rd

Doors open at 6pm. Discussion starts at 6:30pm

At Wenonah Brewery 4065 6th St, Goodview, MN 55987

3.These are a few of his favorite things…
The Gospel. Reading the Bible. Galatians 2:20. Preaching. Biking the bluffs of Trempealeau County. Anything he can do with others: golf, fishing, bean bag toss.

4. He can grow facial hair before lunch. Fascinating!
Keeping his unibrow and beard under control is a fulltime job. Tell us more!

5. Goodview Trinity is his dream call
He continues to praise God to be (to have been called) called to a congregation that loves Jesus and wants to be accessible to the community. He says he already feels like part of the family of believers. When living in Arcadia, WI he and his family often went to Winona to bike, shop, and go to parks. While living there, he once remarked to his wife, “I’ve never been so happy in my life.”
