05junAll Day07The Lutheran Way with the Liturgy

Event Details

At this time, when we are surrounded by various views and opinions on worship and liturgy, and in the context of having opportunities to learn from other Christian traditions concerning the questions of the liturgy, there is a possibility of doing it the Lutheran way. Rather than adopting what others are doing and seeing if we can find some theological justification for this, Lutherans go to the heart of the matter, the Gospel. We will reflect on liturgy with several key points in mind, such as Amt Christi (Office of Christ), δόσις and λῆψις (giving and receiving), sacramentum/beneficium and sacrificium, Gnadenmittelamt (means of grace) and Gnadenmittelsami (means of grace office) and Christian vocation. We will seek to confess the coherence of doctrine, liturgy and Christian life. (1.5 CEU)
