Dad Rod Thursdays – A Christmas Sermon From Luther

Once again we are featuring a treat for Christmas from Dr. Rosenbladt. Listen to Dr. Rosenbladt preach a Christmas sermon borne of Martin Luther’s writings, constructed by Dr. Roland Bainton, who taught history at Yale University from 1936 to 1961.
