Lenten Preaching Workshop
Monday, January 16, 2017
8:30 a.m.–4:00 p.m.
Theme: Preaching the Penitential Psalms in Lent: “Lord, Have Mercy”
Drawing on Luther’s work on the Psalms, this workshop will seek to equip pastors to preach on the penitential Psalms for the midweek Lenten services. In this year, which marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, we will be especially attentive to Luther’s treatment of these Psalms as they proclaim repentance and faith, contrition for our sin and Christ’s unmerited forgiveness. In preparation for the workshop, participants may wish to read Fruit for the Soul: Luther on the Lament Psalms by Dennis Ngien (Fortress Press, 2015).
Presenter: Prof. John T. Pless, assistant professor, Pastoral Ministry and Missions, Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Indiana
Fee: $40.00, includes lunch
