JOINT LUTHERAN-CATHOLIC MIDWEEK LENTEN EVENT

March 22 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)
Weekly on the same day until April 5, 2017
From Conflict to Communion

As a part of Our Savior’s 90th Anniversary and the 500th Commemoration of the Reformation we will be sharing our midweek Lenten Soup Suppers with Christ the King Roman Catholic Church as we participate in a 5-week study of the book, From Conflict to Communion.

The book covers not only the circumstances and responses surrounding the Protestant Reformation and the formation of the Lutheran Church but also how over the last 50+ years Lutherans and Roman Catholic have worked toward unity and full communion. Each Wednesday participants will gather for a soup dinner followed by discussion of portions of From Conflict to Communion (available for free download).

We will alternate between Our Savior and Christ the King each week with the following schedule of locations and topics.

DATE LOCATION FCTC Chapter(s) & Topic
March 8 LCOS Forward, Introduction, and Ch. 6: Five Ecumenical Imperatives
March 15 CTK Ch. 1-2: Commemorating the Reformation & New Perspectives
March 22 LCOS Ch. 3: Historical Sketch of Reformation and RC Response
March 29 CTK Ch. 4: Basic Themes of Luther’s Theology In Light of Dialogues
April 5 LCOS Ch. 5: Called to Common Commemoration

Soup will be served from 6:00-6:30 with the Group Discussion beginning at 6:30 to about 7:30.

Why Attend? Even if you typically don’t attend this Lenten midweek event this may be a year to change your habit. If you are in a Lutheran-Catholic relationship or know others who are these discussions will be enlightening. If your understanding of Lutherans and Catholics is based mostly on what you’ve heard from family and friends the information shared will be illuminating. If you’ve ever wondered “What are the real differences between Lutherans and Catholics?” these dinners and discussions will offer answers.

If you need a hardcopy of From Conflict to Communion you can pick up a notebook copy with the Study Guide at the church office. We hope to see you on March 8 as we begin our journey together with our Roman Catholic brothers and sisters in Lent
