Lessons from the Life of Luther

 A 4-week presentation by
Rev. Dr. Timothy Maschke
Professor of Theology at Concordia University Wisconsin
Trinity’s Sanctuary • 6:30-8:00 PM
On the Wednesday Evenings of January 7, 14, 21, & 28, 2015

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.

Week 1- Did Luther really throw an inkwell at the Devil? Would Luther have a blog or used Twitter, if he were alive today? Why did Luther switch his studies from law to theology? Our first session will focus on Luther's life and times, including a look at his 95 Theses.

Week 2- Why did Luther encourage "public education"? Would he do so today? For whom did he write catechisms? Luther spent most of his life in the classroom. That had a significant impact on his life. His educational philosophy and pedagogical tools will be sampled in our session this week.

Week 3- What is the value of the Christian family? How can work be done to God's glory? Why did Luther say a milkmaid could do more for God than a monk? Answers to these and other home-and-job-related questions will be presented and discussed in our study of Luther’s life and legacy.

Week 4- Did Luther use drinking songs as a base for his hymns? How would Luther react to our Sunday services? Why did Luther teach his barber to pray? What are essential resources for spiritual growth from Luther’s perspective? In this last week, we will spend some time on Luther's ideas of worship and praise and spiritual nurture.
