500 years is a long time. To summarize, between Martin Luther's nailing of the 95 Theses on the door of the Wittenburg Cathedral and today, there has been an industrial revolution, two world wars, the Space Age, and now the Information Age. How far have we come since Luther ignited one of the most important shifts in theological thought, and how are we affected by the Reformation today? Rev. Dr. Martin Lohrmann of Wartburg Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa & Rev. Dr. Erik Herrman of Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri will drop by to give several lectures and lead discussion on the relevance of the Reformation 500 years after the fact. Lunch will be provided.

    Presentations include:
  • Being Religious: the Word in the Center
  • Being Religious: Luther's Pastoral Reforms of Christian Life and devotion
  • Teaching Spiritual Renewal: Luther's New Definition of Christian Faith in the Catechisms
  • Teaching Social Renewal: Luthers New Definition of Christian Love in the Catechism
