Quest

“Heroes & Heretics in the Early Church”

As the saying goes, “those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.” This spring’s Quest course focuses on the value of knowing ancient church history, while considering both the heroes and the heresies of the 4th and 5th centuries A.D. Through the drama of emperors, councils, creeds, bishops, priests, monks, and lay people, we will discover the heart of the Trinitarian and Christological controversies that shape our faith even today. For what was at stake, for heroes and heretics alike, was nothing less than the clarity of the gospel itself. Our sessions will be led by Alex Marque, who is a PhD candidate in the history of biblical interpretation at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri, and this semester’s full-time visiting instructor at Concordia Lutheran Seminary, Edmonton.

Tuesday 19 March:A Battle Fought at Night: Alexander and Athanasius against Arius at the council of Nicaea.”

Tuesday 26 March:And We Believe in the Holy Spirit: A Trio of Heroes for the Trinity of Persons in God at the second Ecumenical Council.”

Tuesday 2 April:Mary Mother of God? Cyril of Alexandria against Nestorius on the oneness of Christ at the council of Ephesus.”

Tuesday 9 April:Jesus Wept: Eutyches’ misunderstanding of Cyril and the reaffirmation of Jesus’ Humanity at the council of Chalcedon.”

Quest runs from 7:00-9:00 pm. As always, you can attend Quest for free, in person at the seminary or online. Group participation using the seminary’s online platform is welcome. Invite your friends!

To secure a place, please register with Kathy Budgell at 780-474-1468 Ext 225 or kbudgell@concordiasem.ab.ca.

May 29, 2020 Sacred Convocation

MARK THE DATE: Concordia Lutheran Seminary, Edmonton Sacred Convocation Friday, May 29, 2020 7:00 p.m. MDT Live ONLINE at: https://youtu.be/fyo95XOsz54
Watch from home as SEVEN new pastoral candidates receive their first Call into ministry, and TWO vicar/interns are placed for service. We thank God for His marvelous blessing upon these men and their families, and upon His Church here in Canada, as Lutheran servants and congregations are connected through this assignment. Graduating students will also receive their degrees and theological diplomas.
Honoree Fran Wershler will receive the Faith in Life recognition. Nearly two-thirds ($650,000) of the funding needed to train these pastors and vicar/interns comes from congregations and individuals across the Church. Thank you for your critical role as a donor to train these pastors (and deacons). Because we are mission minded, a tithe of our convocation donations will also support the LCC mission work in Southeast Asia, where four of our graduates s…

First Annual Research Forum

On September 11 CLS promoted its first Annual Research Forum. Faculty and a guest presenter discussed the Theological research they completed in the past year.
A graduate school's vocation - as it is for any university - is carried out on a triangular basis, with each point supporting and sustaining the others:
· Teaching (in the sense of formal education)
· Research
· Extension
As an academic place, our school is also a place, then, where knowledge is revisited, built and shared in formal and informal education.
Our seminary supports each professor's research by allocating time and means for formal research. Each year, research projects are received and approved; completed projects are shared with the larger community; and final results of each project are evaluated for publication in various ways: either as research articles in specialized journals, or as a doctoral thesis, or as a book.
The inaugural forum’s guest presenter was Rev. Mark Sander, pastor in Mannsville, AB, who sha…
