Word and Work: What Does It Mean to Be Devoted?

In Word and Work: An Intersection, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis President Dr. Dale A. Meyer explores the topic of “devotion” and “devoted” with Dr. David Schmitt, the Gregg H. Benidt Memorial Professor of Homiletics and Literature. Schmitt is a plenary speaker at the Seminary’s 30th Annual Theological Symposium, with the theme “Devoted: (Re)Forming the Devotional Life,” Sept. 17-18, 2019.

The symposium theme arose out of an essay Dr. Schmitt wrote in the book Inviting Community. The book is available at the Seminary’s online store.

You can download the episode in video (mp4) or audio (mp3) format at the Word and Work Scholar page.

Word and Work: An Intersection is a video and audio program providing a behind-the-scenes look at ministry where everyday life and God’s Word meet. It is broadcast on KFUO Radio every Thursday at 2:00 pm CT.
