Lutheran Heritage Foundation’s new Farsi translation of “Luther’s Small Catechism” fills a great need for the LCMS partner church in Germany.
A first draft of the revised “Explanation” to “Luther’s Small Catechism” is mailed to congregations and rostered church workers for feedback by Oct. 31.
Using a weekly resource that Rev. Peter Bender puts together called “The Congregation at Prayer,” everyone from Peace Lutheran Church members to students and families in the school engage in this life and culture of catechesis and prayer.
The 2015 online survey — about updating the “Explanation” of “Luther’s Small Catechism with Explanation,” in keeping with the 2013 Synod convention Resolution 3-13A — is now complete.
The update is needed because of “many changes in the understanding of morals, civil law and natural law in church and society,” according to the 2013 Synod convention.
The resource can help congregations overcome culture and language barriers in their communities.
