Picture1Theology of Spirituality is where the doctrinal teaching of the church meets with the practical life of faith; what Christians believe forms and is formed by how they pray, preach, sing and praise God.

This Lent season Concordia Lutheran Theological Seminary offers a six-part lesson series on the Theology of Lutheran Spirituality. Instead of a broad overview, this course seeks to examine particular aspects of Lutheran faith and their impact on devotional life of Lutheran Christians.

“At times I, who teach this and prescribe it to others, have learned from my own example that praying comes close to being the most difficult of all works. Therefore I do not claim to be a master in this task.“  (Martin Luther)

The instructor for the course is assistant professor of systematic theology, Rev Esko Murto. Course includes a fee of $50. Meetings are held each Monday in Lent season from 6:30 to 8:00 pm.

Please register yourself for the class by sending email to emurto@brocku.ca or calling 289-929-4286. Welcome!

    1. The course will be live at the seminary. We will not be streaming it on the internet, but we will video record the classes and post them to our YouTube channel. That way you can watch them at a convenient time.
