Are Lutherans ‘Spiritual’? We hear a lot these days about ‘spirituality’ and we witness people of other faiths expressing their spirituality in various ways. What about Lutherans? In his new book Thank, Praise, Serve, and Obey — Recover the Joys of Piety (CPH, 2017), William Weedon explores eight Godly habits that Lutherans traditionally have used to cultivate a deeper spiritual life. Pastor James Fritsche will be leading a discussion of this book on Wednesday afternoons (at Redeemer Lutheran Church) and Wednesday evenings (at All Saints Lutheran) during the months of October and November. If you wish to participate, please phone the office at Redeemer (780-439-9104) to order your copy of the book ($25.00).”
