During a recent interview with Pastor Matt Harrison, president of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, he paraphrased Friedrich Wyneken, second president of the LCMS on “The Priesthood of All Believers and the Office of Pastor.”
Our pastors uphold the rights of the spiritual priesthood and encourage them in every way to exercise those profound rights in the Church and also in their private lives. By the same token, so educated to their glorious rights as spiritual priests, those very laypeople love and cherish and treasure the office of pastor. That’s the way the Lord has given it to us to work, and it does work.
