This is the second half of volume 42 of our discussion of Luther's Devotional Writings. In this second half series, we will be looking at Luther's pastoral heart and get a better sense of how he was operating daily in his faith, and how he invokes us also to live in faith.
Join Rev. Richard Rhoades for his Summer Theology Class for a discussion of Luther's Devotional Writings! The class meets Wednesdays at 9:30am in the Conference Room next to the Fellowship Hall. The cost is $12 for the book and you may join in any week during the duration of the summer.
“To the Christian Nobility of the German Nation 1520” In this work, Luther speaks to the governmental leaders of his day amidst the crisis of the Reformation. In a time when abuses by the church were impacting the common people, Luther calls on the leaders to engage in their faith and to be bold in their actions. Join in reading this with 21st century eyes to better grasp God’s call for Christians today.
These videos were recorded at First Lutheran Church in Galveston and led by Rev. Richard Rhoades.
This Adult Bible Study series is based upon the Treatise On Good Works written by Martin Luther. Luther's transformational idea of justification by faith alone was often misunderstood and misrepresented in the early years of the Reformation. In 1520, with his Wittenberg congregation in mind, Luther set out to clarify the biblical foundation of good works. In doing so he recast the very definitions of "sacred" and "secular" both for his own generation and ours. These videos were recorded at First Lutheran Church in Galveston and led by Rev. Richard Rhoades.
