Luther on Marriage & Family - Beginning September 10 at 9:30 AM between services
One of the most important aspects of the Lutheran Reformation was its emphasis on the calling of the everyday Christian. At a time when being a monk or a pastor were thought of as the only genuine way to live one’s life for the Lord, Luther spoke of the Christian life as something all believers live through faith. One of the most important vocations in which many of us serve is in the area of marriage and families—as husbands and wives, parents and children, and members of the extended Christian community. This six-session Bible study focuses on these important themes, based on foundational texts from Scripture. The study also draws from the real-life experiences of Martin and Katie Luther, who were not only husband and wife, but the parents of several children. Included are excerpts from Luther’s personal writings to family and friends as they faced the good and bad that come in everyday living, sustained through the struggles and joys we all have through faith in Christ. The discussion questions focus participates’ attention on God’s Word, making direct application to our present lives of faith.
