The North American Lutheran Seminary (NALS) is offering an exciting opportunity for seminarians, pastors, and lay leaders to explore the rich history of Lutheran theology and its patristic and medieval roots. Join us this summer at the NALS June InterTerm for “The Patristic and Medieval Horizons of the Lutheran Reformation” at Trinity School for Ministry.
Led by NALS theologians Dr. David Luy and Dr. Alex Pierce, the course aims to deepen students’ understanding of what it means to be “Traditionally Grounded”, a core value of the North American Lutheran Church (NALC). The course also aims to present the Lutheran Reformation as an attempt to renew rather than repudiate the church’s catholic inheritance.
By exploring the history and teachings of early and medieval Christian thought and spirituality, students will gain a deeper appreciation for the richness of Lutheran theology and its roots.
Registration for this exciting course is now open, and seminarians, pastors, and lay leaders are invited to join us! The NALS has the commitment to form pastors and leaders with the knowledge and tools necessary to minister effectively in the 21st century. This June InterTerm course is an excellent opportunity to deepen one’s understanding of Lutheran theology and how it can inform and enrich church ministry today.
If you are a seminarian, pastor, or lay leader looking to deepen your understanding of the Lutheran tradition, don’t miss this opportunity to enroll in the NALS 2023 June InterTerm course!
The Patristic and Medieval Horizons of the Lutheran Reformation
It’s been said that “tradition is the living faith of the dead, and traditionalism is the dead faith of the living.” All NALS seminarians, pastors, and lay leaders are invited to join us as we think about the NALC core value of being Traditionally Grounded. How does this value shape ministry? What is the difference between traditionalism and tradition? This course will be taught by NALS professors Dr. David Luy and Dr. Alex Pierce.
