Pre-Lenten Workshop with Reed Lessing – January 18, 2013

Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, will offer a one-day pre-Lenten workshop for pastors on Friday, January 18, 2013. Titled “Good and Perfect Gifts: A Lenten Sermon Series on Isaiah 56–66,” it will be led by Concordia Seminary professor Reed Lessing, who has authored two commentaries on Isaiah (CPH).

Each sermon in this series takes up a specific gift from a text in Isaiah 56–66, interprets it through the life and times of Isaiah, and then creatively applies it to Christians as they journey in Lent from the cross to the empty tomb. Workshop participants will not only become more familiar with this oft-neglected section of Isaiah, but they will be equipped and inspired to proclaim God’s good and perfect gifts that flow from our Savior’s bitter suffering and death.

Participants will leave with a full slate of materials and resources for Lent and Holy Week. Anyone unable to attend the workshop will be able to purchase the Lenten sermon series after January 18 at http://store.csl.edu.

Participants will gather from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. in the Presidents’ Room on the Seminary campus. Registration cost is $50, including all materials and lunch. A registration form can be found at www.csl.edu under Continuing Education to submit online or print and mail. For questions, call 314-505-7486 or email ce@csl.edu.

    Any chance this can be webcast for those of us who live in the hinderland of Lutheranism?
