The Lutheran Church (ELCA) - Its Marks and Practices: Seminar

Donald S. Larsen

Description

This seminar focuses on the theological grounding of the Church, exploring central teachings about the Lutheran church historically and its contemporary practices in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. The course will examine biblical and theological foundations for the assembly's public worship and its members' private devotion; the community's principal aims in religious education; and the church's embodied witness in working for justice. Opportunity will be given to focus a semester project on an aspect of the church's practices related to the student's interests and vocational preparation.
