Eucharistic Practice in the Midst of Economic Injustice

Saturday, May 6, 9am-3pm at Phinney Ridge Lutheran Church

In this 500th Anniversary of the Reformation year you are invited to a workshop that explores the revolutionary reforms promoted by Martin Luther and early Lutheran congregations.

These reforms linked sacramental practice with social assistance.  There will be time to consider the relevance of Luther’s economic and social writings, many of which speak to contemporary issues that ask for an informed Christian response in word and deed.

This workshop is led by Dr. Samuel Torvend, an Episcopal Priest and Professor of the History of Christianity at Pacific Lutheran University.  He is author of Daily Bread, Holy Meal: Opening the Gifts of Holy Communion and Luther and the Hungry Poor: Gathered Fragments, an examination of Luther’s response to the poor.
