As we approach the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in 2017, Dr. Maschke, a Luther scholar from Concordia University Wisconsin, will provide glimpses into the life and legacy of Martin Luther. Each week we will look at a distinct aspect of Luther’s life and the lasting impact he has had on our world today. Topics will include his battles with the devil and the papacy, the place of education in a Christian society and family life, and the profound role of the laity Luther emphasized for the church. Specific documents from Luther will be surveyed as well as several of his hymns.
There is no admission charge, but a free will offering will be taken.
