By Heart, Conversations with Martin Luther's Small Catechism

By Heart.jpg

As part of our continuing adult educations forums and complimentary to the 500th Reformation anniversary efforts, we are offering a seven-week discussion entitled By Heart, Conversations with Martin Luther's Small Catechism.

Martin Luther wrote the small catechism during a time of rediscovery of God's unconditional mercy and a time of complete incognizance of the basics of Christianity. By occupation, Luther was an educator, and he wrote the small catechism to address the ignorance he saw amount the people in his churches. Luther wrote the Large Catechism for Pastors, whom he blamed for the ignorance of the church people.

This exciting seven-week course is for adults who have never encountered the Small Catechism, and it is for adults who studied and memorized it as adults or teens.

It is a good way for cradle Lutherans and those new to Lutheranism to renew their understanding. The course scope is about theology and what it means to believe as Lutherans do.

There will be 3 sessions offered for this study:

  • Mondays, 7:30pm at the Gentes’ Home, beginning Sep 11
  • Thursdays, 7 – 8:15pm at CVLC, beginning Sep 14
  • Fridays, 10 – 11:15am at CVLC, beginning Sep 15

If you have any questions, please see Pastor Linda, Deacon Patrick, and Deacon Jan.  We look forward to seeing you!
