Luther’s Small catechism
September 10 – october 15
Studying the Small Catechism together will give us a common language with which to talk about faith, engage scripture, and make sense of our lives in the 21st century.” – Elizabeth Eaton, Presiding Bisop of the ELCA
This October we will celebrate the 500th Anniversary of the Luther Reformation. While we often focus on the 95 theses that Luther nailed on the church door in Wittenberg, Germany, we often neglect some of the other great contributions Luther made to Christendom. One of those contributions was the Small Catechism. For those who grew up Lutheran, you remember it from Confirmation class – you maybe even had to memorize parts of it. Beginning on September 10th, we will offer a new look at the Catechism for adults. We will focus on three areas: 1) Scripture and tradition, 2) Luther’s explanations, and 3) what that has to do with today. The class will be taught by Pastors Pete and Suellen.
