ADULT FORUM, SEPTEMBER 17, 2017 - Rev. Dr. Thomas Schattauer: Luther’s Liturgical Revolution: Its Enduring Impact

Martin Luther’s proposals for liturgical reform together with his sacramental thinking made an impact upon the understanding and practice of Christian worship that endures into the present. The forum will explore the ritual, theological, and musical dimensions of this legacy in relation to Luther’s fundamental aim that the practice of worship nurture faith (trust) in God and love for the neighbor. The question will be posed: what is the future for this legacy?

Thomas H. Schattauer is Professor of Liturgics and Dean of the Chapel at Wartburg Theological Seminary, Dubuque, Iowa, where he has taught since 1996. He is the author of over thirty articles and essays in liturgical history and theology, the editor of Inside Out: Worship in an Age of Mission (1999), a participant in the work that led to Evangelical Lutheran Worship (2006), a contributor to the Brill Companion to the Eucharist in the Reformation (2011), and a past president of the North American Academy of Liturgy.

ELCA presiding bishop responds to DACA announcement

CHICAGO (Sept. 5, 2017) – The Rev. Elizabeth A. Eaton, presiding bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), has issued the following statement in response to the Trump administration’s announcement about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

“As we journey together through the time God has given us, may God give us the grace of a welcoming heart and an overflowing love for the new neighbors among us” –ELCA social message, “Immigration” (1997).

We are saddened today by the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which provided relief from deportation to young people who have grown up as members of our churches, as neighbors playing with our children, and enriching our communities. We pray today for those who will suffer undue repercussions due to the end of this program. As Lutherans, we regard the family as an indispensable social institution and stand firmly against policies that cause the separation of families.

As we lament this change in policy, we call on members of Congress to pass long-overdue legislation to protect young people brought to the U.S. as children, also known as Dreamers. Our churches, our schools, our communities and the country are enhanced by their presence and contributions. It is time that our immigration policy reflects their gifts to all of us.

God’s peace,

Elizabeth A. Eaton
ELCA Presiding Bishop

POSTCARDS: IMMIGRATION ISSUES - SEPTEMBER 3
The Social Justice Committee asks for your help in contacting our U.S. Senators and Representatives concerning three bills before the Congress. The DACA 2017 act would protect the young people who came to the U.S. with their parents as children and now need time to finish their education and begin a career. The RAISE act would drastically change our national policy on immigration. Rather than family unification, it would be based on the immigrants’ jobs, education, income and age. Finally the Sanctuary act would remove local control of police concerning immigration enforcement. Postcards, pens and a sheet of information will be available during the Social Hour.
