Emergence as a Reformer Luther's Works: Volume 31 1168 Springfield Ave., Mountainside, New Jersey, 07092 Saturday, Dec. 7th, 2020 8:30am-Noon
We have set aside a number of Saturday mornings for the discussion of several major writings from the pen of Dr. Martin Luther. In order to aid us in our study of these writings, on a monthly basis,
The first session on December 7th, 2019, will be from 8:30 a.m. at until noon and focus on three issues that caused Luther to emerge, and be labeled, as a Reformer: (1) in the eyes of God, what kind of righteousness avails before Him and how does a person obtain such righteousness; (2) what caused Luther to rely on Scripture alone as the sole authority for one’s beliefs and way of living and to reject the authority of pope and church councils, etc.; and (3) Luther’s understanding of Christian ethics; that is, faith active in love toward one’s neighbor.

Winter 2020 Pastors Conference Thursday, January 30 - Friday, January 31 Erdman Center – Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, NJ
“Cultural, Societal and Theological Engagement of the Early Christians” Rev. Dr. Joel Elowsky Professor of Historical Theology and Director of the Study of Early Christian Texts at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, MO “The period before and immediately after Constantine’s legalization of Christianity was a time when the church engaged competing cultural, societal and theological pressures similar to some of the challenges the church and her members face today. Sessions will explore these tensions and the church’s response as it dealt with increasing societal and cultural opposition from without as well as theological division from within that ultimately helped shape the seminal confession of the church’s faith and life: the Nicene Creed.”
The registration deadline is Wednesday, January 1st, 2020.
