Lutheran Essentials meets in the undercroft of the church on Wednesday evenings 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.  We are studying the The Smalcald Articles in the Book of Concord.  If you do not have a copy of the Book of Concord we are providing them for free.

The Psalm for this week is Psalm 34.  The Small Catechism lesson is the Sixth Commandment.

This week we will read Part III Article VIII: Confession.  We will discuss what Confession and Absolution and the benefits of Private Confession.  We will also discuss enthusiasm (that God speaks directly to you in an unmediated way), how it has infected humanity since the beginning, and how we must cling to the objective Word of God.  We will then sing the hymn “Thy Strong Word” (LSB 578)

We will then read Part III Article IX: Excommunication.  We will talk about what excommunication is and its proper use.  We will close by singing the hymn “‘As Surely as I Live,’ God Said” (LSB 614)

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.
