Learning Resources for Reformation
“The Freedom of a Christian” Study
Local discussion group now forming!
Dive a little deeper into one of the ground-breaking, thought-shaping works of Lutheran theology as the ELCA invites our whole church body to study and reflect on Martin Luther’s “The Freedom of a Christian” in 2020, its 500th anniversary year. You can download an annotated version of Luther’s writing and the ELCA’s study guide here: https://www.elca500.org
This work is suitable for self-study – but if you’d value conversation with others tying Luther’s thought of 500 years ago with questions and issues that rise up today, please consider joining our local study group. Contact Deaconess Donna King at firstname.lastname@example.org by Reformation Day (10/31) if you’d like an invitation to the introductory meeting.
