Pre-Lenten Workshop 2017

Concordia Seminary, St. Louis will offer a one-day Pre-Lenten Workshop for pastors Friday, Jan. 20, 2017, on “The Art of Living by Faith — Explore the Reformation’s Central Message for Your Life.” Dr. Charles Arand, the Eugene E. and Nell S. Fincke Graduate Professor of Theology, dean of theological research and publication, and director of the Center for the Care of Creation at Concordia Seminary, will serve as the leader.

With the message of salvation by faith alone, the 16th century Reformation focused the world’s attention on the New Testament’s world-altering proclamation of Christ’s death and resurrection. That message continues to reverberate in the 21st century. Only faith in Christ’s promises restores us to life with God and frees us to live the life that God intended for us in this world. This series will explore how faith in Christ shapes every aspect of our lives in such a way that we can never exhaust the inexpressible riches of God’s love for us.

The workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Presidents Room on campus.

The Pre-Lenten Workshop will include sermon manuscripts, textual notes, orders of service for midweek services and also suggestions for the Sundays of Lent to help pastors in developing their own worship resources.

The registration deadline is Jan. 6, 2017. Register here.
