Alright,I realize it is June, and it may be a little early to announce this, but "Taste of the Sem" is already planned for January 16-18, 2010. The theme for next year's "Taste" is "Here I Stand." Our high school guests will take a extremely in-depth look at the Lutheran Reformation.
Three of our professors will engage the guests in this topic by looking at the reformation from an exegetical, systematic, and historical perspective. Exegetically, the professor will lead guests through the translation of portions of Romans 3 from Greek. Systematically, the professor will lead a discussion of phrases such as "sola fide, sola Scriptura, and sola gratia," and why these are so important to us as Lutherans. Historically, one of our professors will discuss how this event, since it did not occur in a historcial vacuum, has had an impact upon both Church and world.
Registration materials and more information regarding this event will be sent out to churches in September.
