For anyone who was unable to participate in the Lenten book study this last spring, Pastor Peter and Pastor John are offering a group study time this summer. Many of those who were able to participate in the Lenten study found the experience to be eye-opening and very meaningful. To register, please call the church office at 651-633-6476 or email@example.com. Plan to purchase your own copy of the book. A participant’s guide will be provided.
This impulse to bring this conversation to Christ the King arose out of a conference attended last fall by CtK members and staff entitled, “Journeying toward Justice: Privilege and Race in Our Church.” Coming away from the conference, CtK members felt called to bring the issues of justice, particularly racial justice, back to our congregation.
The goal of using this book for the study is not convince or persuade participants to think one way or the other; the goal is bring awareness and equip ourselves further on how to have respectful and empathetic conversations around difficult, but important issues.
We hope that this study will help us as a congregation to take steps towards justice and reconciliation with our neighbors.
If ever there were a power behind the throne, none was stronger than Katharina von Bora, Luther’s wife. On Jan. 29, 1499, Katharina was born into a noble but poor family. By 16, she was a nun. In addition to her Latin lessons and sacred readings, she and her fellow nuns began reading other material: the writings of Luther.
