Pre-Lenten Workshop Offered at Concordia Seminary

Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, will offer a one day pre-Lenten workshop for pastors on Friday, Jan. 17, 2014 called “CrossWords: A Lenten Sermon Series on Jesus’ Words from the Cross.”

The sermon series provides sermons and worship resources for the seven weeks of Lent (including Good Friday). This series, intended for midweek services during Lent, focuses on the words of Jesus which were spoken from the cross. Each week one of the sayings of Christ is examined, giving the listeners the opportunity to reflect upon the words of life which Jesus spoke while in the very midst of death. These words from the cross are his “crosswords.”

Pastors will gather from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. in the Koburg Hall on the Seminary campus. Registration cost is $50, including all materials and lunch. A registration form can be found at to submit online or print and mail. The registration deadline is Jan. 10. For questions, call 314-505-7286 or email
