Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, will host its fall 2010 Lay Bible Institute from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday evenings, October 6, 13, 20, 27, in Sieck Hall on the Seminary campus. “Living as Citizens of Heaven and Citizens of America: The Role of Christians in a Democratic Society” will be presented by Dr. Charles Arand, professor at Concordia Seminary.
Does God have a political party? Does following Jesus mean ignoring the government? What happens when the government ignores — or imposes on — the church laws that run contrary to Scripture? Should the church speak up on controversial issues or leave that to individual Christians?
To register for the Lay Bible Institute, please call 314-505-7486 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, or e-mail email@example.com. The cost is $30 per person and includes all handouts and refreshments. Concordia Seminary is located at 801 Seminary Place, in Clayton, Mo.
