Advent Series: “Do You See What I See”
Through the prophet Isaiah, God enabled His Old Testament people to see--with amazing clarity and yet the bold images of visions--things which for them were a distant future, but which for us are a present reality: the age of the Messiah. Sermons will utilize a variety of forms to challenge the preacher and engage the hearers.
Lenten Series: “Christ’s Passion and Walther’s Passions”
Select moments from Christ’s last days will be proclaimed by drawing upon the words and story of our synod’s first voice, whose 200th birthday we celebrated so recently. Walther’s passions for Law and Gospel, for the church and the ministry (Altenburg and the seminaries), for the pure confession of Christ (the emigration and Der Lutheraner ), for his flock (the Gesamtgemeinde ) and for the lost, for his beloved synod, and for the sacraments will all be explored. Not just history. Christ crucified, declared to us through a man who had a passion for doing that.
The presenter is Dr. Carl C. Fickenscher II, Associate Professor of Pastoral Ministry and Missions and Dean of Pastoral Education at Concordia Theologial Seminary, as well as editor of the synod's preaching journal, Concordia Pulpit Resources .
