Event Information

Ever since 2017, when the church observed the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, similar anniversaries have begun to present themselves. This year, for example, marks the 500th anniversary of Luther’s translation of the New Testament into German, the 350th anniversary of the death of Heinrich Schütz, and the 150th anniversary of Ralph Vaughan Williams’ birth. In 2023 we’ll celebrate the 500th anniversary of Luther’s first liturgical reforms, and in 2024 we’ll remember the publication of the first Lutheran hymnals.

Remembering the past is beneficial, not only in its own right but also because it informs the decisions we make in the present. At this year’s conference of the Good Shepherd Institute, we will take note of several anniversaries, including the 175th anniversary of the LCMS’s first hymnal, the 60th anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council, and the 40th anniversary of the publication of Lutheran Worship. Through these plenary presentations, along with a variety of sectional topics, the Institute will carry on its mission of addressing matters of worship, church music, and pastoral theology.

We are also pleased to announce that this year marks the return of the biennial art exhibition under the theme “Mourning into Dancing.” To find out more information about the art exhibit, visit its event page by clicking here.
