Christ Lutheran Church in Walla Walla will mark the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation with two presentations given at the church by Dr. Martin Lohrmann, theologian, author and former member of the congregation, at 7:00 p.m. on the evenings of October 20 and 21.
Dr. Lohrmann grew up in Walla Walla and graduated from Valparaiso University in 1999. He received a Master of Divinity from Wartburg Theological Seminary in 2004 and earned his PhD at the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia in 2010. He served as pastor of Christ Ascension Lutheran Church in Philadelphia, PA and is currently Assistant Professor of Lutheran Confessions and Heritage at Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa.
The topic of Dr. Lohrmann's Friday evening presentation will be “Luther’s Medieval Roots.” Although Luther protested the church of his time, many of his views were deeply rooted in medieval Catholic teachings and practices. This presentation will show the positive influences of monasticism, humanism, and Catholic theology on Luther’s reforming work.
Saturday’s topic will be “Luther’s Global Impact, 500 Years later.” The Reformation that Luther started in 1517 impacted many Christian communities around the world, from Roman Catholicism and the English Reformation in the 1500s to more recent religious movements. This presentation will provide an overview of the many ways Luther’s work shaped modern Christianity.
You are invited to attend. Coffee, tea and cookies will be provided.
