You might recall that in an earlier blog post, I quoted Dr. C.F.W. Walther, who said that it is surely the case that from a human perspective, Wilhelm Löhe is the spiritual father of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. Here is news about a conference being held at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne. CTS Fort Wayne was started by Löhe who later turned the seminary over to The LCMS as a gift.
Wilhelm Loehe Conference—Still Time to Register.
Space is still available to attend the upcoming conference to
commemorate the bicentennial birthday of Wilhelm Loehe, who just
happens to be the founder of Concordia Theological Seminary. The
conference runs from 6:00 p.m., Friday, October 10, through noon,
Saturday, October 11. Cost is only $25, which includes breakfast and lunch on Saturday!
Program change: now appearing on the program is
Dr. Wolfgang Fenske of Berlin, Germany.
Dr. Fenske has spent several years doing research in Neuendettelsau,
the town where Loehe lived and worked. Dr. Fenske, who is also a vicar
in the SELK, our partner church in Germany, will present the paper at
our conference dealing with Loehe’s liturgical theology. Please contact the seminary at (260) 452-2100.
