#2245-To Nicolaus von Amsdorf

To the highly-honorable man and worthy Lord Nicolaus von Amsdorf, Licentiat of Theology,in the LOrd his very dear brother.

Grace and peace in the LOrd! I am sending to you, my dear Amsdorf, that which we have dealt with in our meetings and request, at the same time, that you share this also with others, mainly the Pastors of the larger cities according to what opportunity you might have and write here (to us) when you can your and their judgment.

That book of Bibliander or the letters is published contrary to the will of those who were here and they are disgruntled about it. The churches of the Swiss are not yet in this matter of the Concord although they have good hope and say the communities and people are tired of this split and satieated with it and wish that harmony will be established.God bless you according to His goodness,Amen. I have written this being tired after a sermon; more later. Be it welll with you in the LOrd. On the second Pentecost day (5 June) 1536.

NOTE: Editors say the book by Bibliander is a collection of the letters of Zwingli and Oecolampads in 1536 with a foreword by Bucer.
Anyone ever tired after a sermon? Anyone ever tired of a sermon?
