Stuckwisch Topic

Dr. Stuckwisch will highlight the Word and work of Christ Jesus in the Liturgy of His Gospel, whereby the Lord teaches us on the way, opens the Holy Scriptures to us, and brings us in repentant faith and holy joy to recognize and receive Him at His Altar. As He thus lives with us and for us in these ways and means of His grace, so does He enliven us with His Word and Spirit, Flesh and Blood, to live in faith toward Him and in fervent love for one another. Thus do we worship Him in the hearing and receiving of His Liturgy and in our life together as fellow members of His one Body. It is in such faith and love that we faithfully hand over what we have received from the Lord through the Ministry of His Word, from generation to generation. And it is likewise in faith and love that we adorn His Word and work in the Liturgy with beauty, reverence, and consistency of sound practice. In respect to such matters of ‘adiaphora’ (that which is neither commanded nor forbidden by God), Dr. Stuckwisch will discuss the salutary benefits of rubrics, rites, and ceremonies, church customs and traditions, and a unity of practice within the fellowship of the Church on earth.
