Concordia Seminary Announces Special Reformation Service

Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, is pleased to offer a special worship service in observance of the Reformation at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 28, in The Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus on the Seminary campus. The public is invited to attend.

Dr. Glenn Nielsen, professor of practical theology and director of the Seminary’s vicarage program, will serve as preacher. Hymns and choral offerings emphasizing the major themes of the Reformation will be included.

The choirs of the Seminary will present music from the Lutheran heritage and also from more recent times. Preservice music will include Richard Hillert’s setting Martin Franzmann’s text, “O Kingly Love.” A composition highlighting All Saints’ Day, “The Kontakion,” will also be part of the prelude that begins at 2:45 p.m.

“The Reformation’s clear expression of the Gospel was a great transforming force in the church and remains a worthy cause for thanksgiving and celebration,” commented Dr. James Brauer, dean of the chapel at Concordia Seminary. “We are pleased to invite the St. Louis community to rejoice in word and song over our salvation through Jesus Christ and to pray with us that the message reach everyone on this earth.”
