Pre-Lenten Workshop explores account in Luke

One-day workshop for pastors set for Jan. 21

Pastors are invited to register for the 2022 Pre-Lenten Workshop, “You Meant it for Evil, but God Meant it for Good: Sermons based on Luke 22:1-24:12,” from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Jan. 21, held on the campus of Concordia Seminary, St. Louis.

The annual one-day workshop helps pastors develop their worship resources for Lent. This year, Emeritus Professor Dr. Jeffrey Gibbs will lead participants through an exploration of the uniqueness of Luke’s account of Jesus’ suffering, death and resurrection.

“Before moving toward homiletical applications, we will carefully read Luke 22:1—24:12 and open ourselves to insights and encouragement from God’s Word,” Gibbs said. “After that time of refreshment, we will consider the preaching task, with a focus on the Lenten series that has been prepared.”

The Pre-Lenten Workshop will be held in the Presidents Room on campus, 801 Seminary Place, St. Louis, MO 63105. Registration is $50 and includes lunch. The deadline for registration is Jan. 7.
