This Lenten sermon series, which runs from Ash Wednesday through Easter Sunday, arose out of Dr. Dale A. Meyer’s “Preaching in the Postmodern World” class at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. Working with the seminarians in the course, he developed this series to address the key themes of postmodern culture and life. The series intertwines these themes with ideas from Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s classic work “Life Together” to focus on what it means to live in community in postmodern times, drawing on selected texts from 1 Peter, as we walk together the way to the cross and empty tomb.
The download includes two documents. The first contains collects, lessons, hymn suggestions, sermon notes, outlines, and full manuscripts, including two sermon options for Easter Sunday. The second document includes responsive prayers that are reproducible for bulletins or worship folders.
