Using Catechism in the Congregation

August 25, 2022-August 27, 2022


The 2017 Catechism has numerous features that have the potential of enhancing the use of Luther’s Small Catechism in the congregation. This course will explore the guiding principles behind the revision, implications for catechetical pedagogy, the use of Scripture and the Lutheran Confessions in the revision, and devotional aspects of the Synod’s new catechism. This course will provide suggestions for a richer use of Luther’s Catechism in the congregation focusing on prayer and vocation. We will also offer some models for preaching on the chief parts of the Catechism in the Advent and Lenten midweek services.
