Christian Wisdom

The classes on Wednesday nights from 7:00 to 8:00 are a blend of lecture, discussion, and interactive activities meant to supplement and deepen understanding of the readings. The classes will be taught by Rev. David H. Petersen, Redeemer’s senior pastor. We will post audio recordings of the lectures and class material below as soon as we are able after each class.

Beginning on Wednesday, February 6 at 7:00 pm will offer the latest installment of our ongoing in-depth Bible classes entitled “Christian Wisdom.”

The classes are offered every fall and spring and last for just 10 weeks each. They are taught at the level of a community college course and expect the participants to do some reading and thinking outside of class. This fall’s offering will focus on Luther’s life and theology as seen in the Catechisms. Participants will be given a copy of Luther’s small and large catechisms for the class for free. They will then be given assigned readings each week from the Psalms.

The class and books are free but registration is required.
