Letters from a Lonely Lutheran: Confidence and Joy Under the Cross

June 30, 2020-July 2, 2020

This class will examine the pastoral letters of Hermann Sasse (1895-1976) as he encouraged brother pastors the worldover to continue steadfast in the hope that does not disappoint. We will read and discuss letters that were forged in times of crisis both in the world and the church. Sasse wrote to pastors often living in isolation brought about by geography or confession. Sometimes both. He filtered all of theology and all of life through the lens of the cross. He is a model for us today even as he continues to teach us the Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions. He was a theologian of the cross in a time of crisis. His witness will inspire our own.
