An Invitation into the Homes of Practicing Christians
Dr. Anthony (Tony) Cook
Studies have revealed much about the state of religion in the United States and how faith is perceived and discussed in public. But how is faith being nurtured in private—with the spouses, children, parents, roommates and even frequent visitors who spend time under our roofs?
Join Rev. Dr. Anthony (Tony) Cook, vice president, Global Ministries, Lutheran Hour Ministries, for an in-depth look at today's Christian households as revealed through new research conducted by Barna Group in collaboration with Lutheran Hour Ministries.
As we uncover faith heritages and history, come discover how vibrant households grow together, practice hospitality, and share their faith with those around them and the next generation.
Additional Continuing Education Opportunities
Faith and Writing Workshop
Concordia Seminary’s “Faith and Writing” workshop explores various forms of creative writing — starting a blog, creating a sermon or devotion, “traditional” forms of creative writing (story, nonfiction, drama, poetry) — and everything in between.
The Seminary’s annual Multiethnic Symposium brings together Lutherans and mission leaders of various ethnicities from across the country for workshops, discussions and worship.
The Pre-Lenten Workshop includes 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.
Summer Workshop Series
Hosted by congregations across the country May through August, and led by Seminary faculty, these workshops offer an opportunity to delve deeply into topics ranging from the teachings of Martin Luther to pastoral tools, such as preaching, responding to conflict and teaching confirmation.
Parish pastors, district and synodical officials, Seminary and Concordia University students and faculty and interested laypersons attend each year to delve into some of the most pressing issues of our time. One CEU is available for attending the Symposium.
