Theme for the Oktoberfest and Gottesdienst Central, Oct. 10-12, 2010:

"Liturgy, Church, Ministry: Some Afterthoughts"

This year we are pleased to welcome as our guest the Rev. Dr. David P. Scaer, Professor at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Dr. Scaer has made his mark among the foremost confessional Lutheran scholars of the 20th and 21st century, and has taught and mentored a generation of pastors. A prolific writer, he has been in the vanguard for confessional thinking on the topics he will be addressing for us. We are honored to have him return to St. Paul’s to address our conference.

Oktoberfest begins Sunday afternoon with choral vespers at 5, and is followed by our annual bratwurst banquet, at which we expect to hear briefly from Dr. Scaer. Then on Monday he will lead our Gottesdienst Central seminar.

On Tuesday, Rev. Dr. Burnell Eckardt, the pastor at St. Paul’s, will lead a workshop on liturgical rubrics, in connection with his new book The New Testament in His Blood: A Study of the Holy Liturgy of the Christian Church. The book will be available for purchase at the conference.
