On November 4, 2019, Dan Paavola (Theology Faculty) discussed with Center Faculty, the three themes from his recent book “Grace, Faith, Scripture: Portrait of a Lutheran” (2019).

PowerPoint

About his book: Grace, faith, and Scripture. These three solas, or “alones”,  have long been used to characterize the unique theology of the Lutheran faith. The solas set up a relationship between God and us and between us and our neighbor.

Using stories and situations drawn from common relationships such as friendships and marriage, Daniel Paavola uses the three solas to deepen our understanding of Lutheran doctrine. The solas don’t encompass every single aspect of Lutheranism, but through them, we can get a picture of what it means to be a Lutheran.

A Concordia Primer for Faith and Learning

At the September 10 Lunch n’ Learn, Dr. William Cario talked about the Concordia Primer for Faith and Learning. He wrote this primer to give faculty, schools and departments an overview of Concordia’s stance as a Lutheran and Christian organization. This also serves as a tool to give faculty a clearer sense of institutional expectations about relating faith and learning.

You can watch the archived presentation here.
