Springfield, Ohio - The Reformation and Martin Luther will be the focus of two major Wittenberg Series events Oct. 27 and 28.
The annual Festival Choral Eucharist for Reformation will be held at 8 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 27 in Weaver Chapel. Special music by the Wittenberg Choir, Brass Choir and Handbell Choir will begin at 7:30 p.m.
Preaching will be the Rev. Dr. Ted Peters, professor of systematic theology at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary and the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California and program director for the Science and Religion Course Program at the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences.
The fifth annual Kenneth H. Sauer Luther Symposium will be held at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 28 in Kissell Auditorium, Koch Hall, on the Wittenberg University campus.
The symposium will include an address, "The Science and Faith Dialogue in Lutheran Perspective," by Peters who received his master's and Ph.D. degrees from The University of Chicago. He also received an honorary doctorate from Wittenberg in 1994. A panel discussion will follow.
The Kenneth H. Sauer Symposium was endowed in his honor when he retired in 1996 as Bishop of the Southern Ohio Synod, ELCA. A 1952 graduate of Wittenberg and a graduate of Hamma School of Theology, Sauer has served as director of the Institute for Mission in the USA at Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus since 1996.
Wittenberg University sponsors the Wittenberg Series, which is made possible by contributions to the college's general fund, income from endowed lecture funds, student fees, co-sponsors and foundations.
