Dr. David Maxwell
The texts traditionally read at the Easter Vigil prepare the hearers for Easter by emphasizing Baptism and repentance in the broad sweep of the scriptural narrative. Dr. David Maxwell, the Louis A. Fincke and Anna B. Shine Professor of Systematic Theology, draws from these texts to explore what repentance is – and what a life of repentance looks like. Participants will receive six sermons designed for the mid-week Lenten services before Holy Week.
Additional Continuing Education Opportunities
Faith and Film Festival
The annual Faith and Film Festival provides an opportunity for those interested in film and theology to ponder Christian themes in contemporary cinema and develop eyes to see film in new ways.
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.
Lay Bible Institute
Calling lay people, students involved in homiletical education, pastors and others interested in the proclamation of the Gospel in today’s world: the Lay Bible Institute is for you!
The Seminary’s annual Multiethnic Symposium brings together Lutherans and mission leaders of various ethnicities from across the country for workshops, discussions and worship.
Parish pastors, LCMS district and Synod 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.
Hosted by congregations across the country from 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.
