Prof Insights: Chad Lakies

Dr. Chad Lakies invites the public to his online workshop, “The Church’s Witness in a Secular Age.” The workshop, part of Concordia Seminary’s Prof Insights: Faculty-Led Workshop Series, will be held July 6-8. Registration is $100. The registration deadline is June 21. “The Christian church (in the United States) is now a minority … leading some to say for that the first time we are officially living in a pagan nation,” Lakies said. “How did we go from a time, say 500 years ago just as the Reformation was getting underway and Christian belief was virtually all there was, to a time when the Christian faith is merely one option among a myriad of others?”

Paul Raabe reflects on the label “Lutheran” and how, in some contexts, it does not communicate to most Americans. We need to be able to explain ourselves to outsiders in ways intelligible to them. Maybe a church sign should say: “A Gospel-Baptism-Lord’s Supper-Bible-Creedal-Liturgical Church - Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.” These descriptions are the markers of our church body.
