Lutheran Essentials meets in the undercroft of the church on Wednesday evenings following the Lenten Prayer and Preaching Service which starts at 7pm. You can reach the undercroft by going around to the back parking lot of the church and descending the staircase to the kitchen. Knock on the door if it is closed and some one will let you in. Our current study is on “The Fire and the Staff” by Klemet Preus. If you do not have a copy of the “The Fire and the Staff” or the Book of Concord we are providing them for free.
We will finish reading through “The Fire and the Staff”. We will finish reading Chapter 12: The Fire Stoked (pg. 397-434) by picking up with the Matrix of Change (pg. 417). We will discuss how change is rightly introduced into the church and how it is wrongly introduced in the church. We will also discuss what it means to be patient with our weaker brethren and why tradition in the church is good and should be preserved if it does not offend the Gospel. We will then close out our discussion with the Conclusion (pg. 435-443).
Next week we will be starting our new study on the Epitome of the Formula of Concord.
As always new people are always welcome to this study at any point during the class. Please talk to the Pastor, Elders or Paul Edmon if you have any questions.
