This year’s Day Lenten Journey offers a unique opportunity to wrestle with the meaning of the cross for us today as we look at Luther’s teachings through two very special sessions led by Dr. Mark Tranvik, Professor of Religion at Augsburg College: "How Luther Got Crossed-up" and "His Cross is Your Cross." Bringing additional richness and meaning to the day will be special music by Kraig Windschitl, art, worship led by Pastor Drew Bakken, and as always, good food and fellowship. This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to set the stage for a very special Lenten season indeed!

Cost: $25. Complimentary bus from 7500 York (8:45am), West (9am), Mpls (9:15am). Call 952.469.2175 or email kretka@mtolivetretreat.org for information and registration.

Whether you are looking for a refresher of your confirmation studies or you are relatively new to the Lutheran faith, exploring Luther’s explanations of the Ten Commandments, Apostles’ Creed, and Lord’s Prayer will breathe new life into well-known tenets of our faith. This course is also perfect for parents, grandparents, and godparents who want to learn the Small Catechism alongside their confirmands, or for people who are thinking about teaching confirmation but wish they were more familiar with the material.

Minnesota Orchestra – New Reformation Symphony

In 1830, Felix Mendelssohn composed the Reformation Symphony to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the Augsburg Confession. Now a “New Reformation Symphony” has been commissioned to honor the 500th anniversary of Luther posting the 95 Theses.

This March the Minnesota Orchestra will announce its 2017-18 season schedule, including its premiere of the New Reformation Symphony, tentatively scheduled for November 3-5.  The performance will feature Mendelssohn's Reformation Symphony during the first half, followed by the new Reformation Symphony by Sebastian Currier in the second half of the concert.  You don't want to miss this special musical event!
