The Theology Department at Concordia University Ann Arbor presents “Reformation Relived: After 500 Years,” a four-part speaker series taking place over the course of the next year on Concordia’s campus.

The series is being launched in anticipation of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation of the Protestant Church in October 2017. Sparked by Martin Luther nailing 95 Theses to a church door in Wittenburg in 1517, the series recognizes how the Reformation continues to shape our world 500 years later.

“The Reformation Relived series features experts on Luther and the Reformation, exploring their continuing relevance for 2017 and beyond,” said Rev. Ted Hopkins, Assistant Professor of Theology at Concordia University.

The speakers, dates, and topics include:

All events will begin at 7 p.m. in the Kreft Center for the Arts on Concordia’s campus, located at 4090 Geddes Road, Ann Arbor, Michigan. “Reformation Relived: After 500 Years” is a free event, open to the public.

In addition to the speaker series, CUAA will host a campus-wide Reformation 500 Oktoberfest on Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017, and a Reformation Roundtable on Sept. 19, 2017. The Reformation Roundtable is a panel-led discussion on the impact and importance of Luther and the Reformation in various church denominations and contexts. Panel members leading the discussion include the President of Concordia University Ann Arbor and Wisconsin Rev. Dr. Patrick T. Ferry, and Associate Pastor of Knox Presbyterian Church in Ann Arbor Rev. Bob. Lynn.
