The Devotional Life of Lent

In Word and Work: An Intersection, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, President Emeritus Dr. Dale A. Meyer talks with Dr. David Schmitt, the Gregg H. Benidt Memorial Professor of Homiletics and Literature, professor of practical theology and chairman of the Department of Practical Theology at the Seminary. The two men delve into the topic of the Lenten season in today’s world. “Devotion is a deepening of a attention to the practice of the teachings of the faith that everybody else believes,” Schmitt says. “The devotional life is the way in which the Spirit works in the community of the faith to draw various people to various teachings. The whole community benefits from this.”

In the audio version, listen to a chapel service from Schmitt. You can download the episode in video (mp4) or audio (mp3) format at the Word and Work Scholar page: https://scholar.csl.edu/wordandwork/92/.

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.
