Mark Oldenburg Webinar 8/27/21: Worship and Civic Life




Lutherans firmly declare that Christians are in but not of the world. That means that observing civic holidays in worship is an important but dangerous practice. How might worship leaders plan to proclaim the Gospel in the context of those festivals? And how might civic engagement more generally be part of a community’s worship life?
