Lutheran Essentials meets in the undercroft of the church on Wednesdays at 8pm following Lenten Vespers at 7pm. You can find the undercroft by going around the back to the parking lot of the church and then down the stairs through the kitchen. Please knock on the door and ring the bell and some one will let you in. You can also join us remotely via our livestream on the FLC YouTube. Our current study is on the Pilgrim’s Progress. As usual we are handing out the book for free. We are also handing out copies of the Book of Concord and the Lutheran Service Book for free.
We will be reading Chapter Nine (pg. 153-163). In this chapter Christian and Hopeful leave the Way for an apparently easier path. Unfortunately the two end up trapped in Doubting Castle by the Giant of Despair. In the dungeon Christian wrestles with thoughts of suicide while Hopeful tries to comfort him. We will close with the hymn “If Thou But Trust in God to Guide Thee” (LSB 750).
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.
