Justus Falckner, born in Germany, came to the new world in 1700 as an attorney and surveyor. Arriving in Pennsylvania, Falckner met Swedish missionaries, who three years later recommended him to a Dutch congregation in New York. On November 24, 1703, Falckner was the first Lutheran to be ordained in America. Falckner's parish grew and included African Americans and Native Americans. He wrote hymns and later founded New Hanover Lutheran Church in New Hanover, PA.

Jan Hus said that he might be a weak goose [‘Huss’ means ‘a goose’ in Czech], but more powerful and clear-sighted birds, eagles and falcons would come after him. Jerome of Prague said he wished to see what would be made of his own condemnation in a hundred years. In 102 years, Luther appears to have merged the two, "They may roast a goose in 1415, but in a hundred years a swan would sing to whom they will be forced to listen." Variations exist, as well as the saying, "Your goose is cooked."

The Ten Commandments in the original Hebrew are not numbered, thus several different numerations exist. In Luther's, the first three deal with honoring God. The second turns us toward love of neighbor, starting in the home with the family. Much like honoring God, we should honor those who helped give us life. The remainder deal with life in community.
