Some gleanings from Prof.Gritters:The blessings of Heidelberg Catechism preaching.

1)       Grounds believers in sound doctrine

2)      Anchors church in history and tradition

3)      Theological balance and whole counsel of God.

4)      Unity

5)       Confessional identity

6)      It is the Gospel.

7)       Reminds us to live antithetically.

8)      Retains a proper subjective element in preaching-what we should love, hate etc.

And one from Rev Carl Haak: “Thankfulness is the power of holiness.”
