Lutheran Essentials meets in the undercroft of the church on Wednesday evenings after the midweek Lenten service. 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 Spirituality of the Cross” by Gene Edward Veith Jr. If you do not have a copy we are providing them for free. We are also continuing to provide the Book of Concord for free.
We will finish reading the sixth chapter Conclusion: Worshiping God. We will dig deeper in this session into The Mystery of Holiness (pg. 138-140) and discuss why it is important that worship be reverent, sacred, and holy. In Heaven on Earth (pg. 140-143) we will discuss the Divine Service and what it means in general, leaving a deeper discussion for a future study on Klemet Preus’s book “The Fire and the Staff”. We will close our study by singing “Jesus Christ Our Blessed Savior” (LSB 627). Our next study will be on The Smalcald Articles and The Treatise on the Power and Primacy of the Pope starting on March 25th.
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.
