Immanuel, Lincoln, has agreed to host the Nebraska Lutherans for Confessional Studies meeting.
Confessional Study: AC XXVII by Pastor John Schmidt,
Rev. Carlton Hein will give a paper.
Please call Pastor Don Cooper of Immanuel if you plan on attending and/or if you need directions.
Also, since I will be on vacation until the 15th could those near Tim Wagner, Loren Cooper, Bill Larson, Pat Burt please contact them and inform them of the date and time of the meeting.
The time line for the study group is as follows:
TIME: 9:00 -- Coffee;
9:30 -- Matins;
10 - Noon -- Study
The intention is to have the papers that were scheduled for last year's hurricane postponed event. The preaching is lined up, as well as the liturgists for the divine services, and refreshments.
The cost is only $55.00, which is a bargain for the accomodations and the food.
We do not make money on this, nor do we intend to. In fact, we have paid Pastors to attend.
One special note: With the calling to glory of our beloved Pr. Marvin Lehnhardt, we have a new treasurer. Tom Johnson of Christ, Chalmette is the man now. Please send your checks to him at 3300 Jupiter Drive, Chalmette, LA. 70043-6103.
September 26, 27 & 28
FWIW, we had that weekend long before the Pieper Lectures had them, and they moved in on our time!
At any rate, our speaker for this event with be Dr. Feurhahn, who will be speaking on Pietism and its effects on the Church of the 20th Century . . . specifically, the Lutheran Church.
This year the conference will be held in Columbia, and the cost will be $25 or $30 plus lodging and food costs . . . HOWEVER, we will be providing lunch on Monday, snacks on Monday and Tuesday morning, as well as a full dinner on Monday. And all for the low cost of $25 or $30 dollars. A better deal can't be found anywhere.
Please let me know if you would be interested in coming.

The Reverend Doctor Lee Maxwell
Pastor, St. John Lutheran (Maryville, IL) Starting from Scriptures and the Confessions, Rev. Dr. Lee Maxwell will explain how actions or ceremonies in Christian worship confess the faith which the words express and foster piety in those who speak and those who hear them.
While attention to performance does not add power to the Word, its neglect may detract from its reception. Therefore, participants will hear and practice noble means of presenting the word in speech and chant. Presented by Dr. Lee Maxwell and Rev. Richard Herbel.
The Reverend Richard Herbel is the Prior of St. Augustine's House in Oxford, MI, the only Lutheran Benedictine monastery in the United States. A graduate of Concordia Seminary (St. Louis), he is the Managing Editor of The Bride of Christ, a Lutheran liturgical journal.
The Reverend David Saar is the Pastor of St. John's Lutheran in Mount Forest, Ontario. Published in several Lutheran journals, he is graduate of Concordia Lutheran Theological Seminary (St. Catharines, Ontario).
The Reverend Deacon David Muehlenbruch is a graduate of Concordia Seminary (St. Louis) and a member of Bethany Lutheran (Ft Wayne, IN). Trained in Gregorian chant, he is a respected Lutheran rubricist.
The St. Michael Liturgical Conference is for pastors concerned with the Evangelical-Lutheran liturgy. It will inform them of the liturgy's rubric, rite and ceremony so that they might make informed decisions about local customs in their parishes.
Most Liturgical Conferences deal with the Theology of Worship. This Conference deals with the practical application of Lutheran Liturgical Theology.
While the St. Michael Liturgical is geared primarily for Pastors, students and laity are welcome to attend.
