“Train yourself for godliness;
for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come”
(I Timothy 4:7b-8; 2014 seminaries theme).
Lutheran Church–Canada no longer designates a specific day “Seminaries Sunday”, but encourages her congregations to remember the two seminaries with prayers and offerings. You may wish to observe it in conjunction with an Education Sunday in September, remembering the opening of our academic year. We encourage you to use the propers appointed for the day, but you may also choose to make use of the seminaries’ joint theme verse (above). Liturgical resources and a bulletin cover / insert are available for your use here. You may encourage offerings towards the seminaries’ operating budgets through your congregational offerings, or request special envelopes by contacting the seminaries directly.
