Event description
The premier liturgical conference in North America Focus: Liturgical expression of Confessional Lutheran theology

About this Event

The Keynote Presenter for our 2019 conference will be the Reverend Fr. Roy Axel Coats, Pastor of Lutheran Church of the Redeemer, Baltimore, Maryland. His topic will be “Adiaphora and Modernity”. The question of adiaphora has troubled the Church throughout her history. Fr. Coats will focus on one place and time, Leipzig around 1700, and explore the debate regarding adiaphora between the orthodox Valentin Alberti, the pietist Philipp Spener, and the modernist Christian Thomasius. He will show how this debate has shaped the modern world and the Liturgy of the Church up to our present day.

We are also pleased to welcome as presenters:

The Reverend Fr. Charles McClean, Pastor of Our Savior Evangelical-Lutheran Church of Baltimore, Maryland, who will present on the life and work of Friedrich Lochner;

The Reverend Dr. Frank Pies, Senior Pastor Emeritus of Our Savior Evangelical-Lutheran Church of Hartland, Michigan, who will present on the rite, rubrics and ceremony of Private Confession and Absolution;

The Reverend. Dr. Burnell Eckardt, Pastor of St. Paul Evangelical-Lutheran Church of Kewanee, Illinois, who will present on the Pastoral implications of the Atonement.

Preaching at the Solemn Mass on the Commemoration of St. Jerome will be the Reverend Dr. David Petersen, Senior Pastor of Redeemer Evangelical-Lutheran Church of Fort Wayne, Indiana.

All the presenters, the preacher, and Gottesdienst editors in attendance will participate in a Panel Discussion of the topics presented, and answer questions from the attendees.

An organ recital by Zion's Cantor, Miss Emily Solomon, will be featured in the afternoon.
