LOCI - "Asceticism in the Early Church"

  • All Saints Lutheran Church 17030 Lancaster Hwy Charlotte, NC, 28277 United States (map)

Lutherans have largely rejected monasticism and asceticism (discipline) for most of our history. Was this the right thing to do? Have we missed out on a whole strand of tradition? What might we glean and gain from the early days of the church, when men and women flocked to the deserts in search of the pure Christian life? Did Luther and the Lutherans even reject this great Christian tradition? Like ocean explorers, come delve into the vast uncharted world of Asceticism and the Early Church.

Join us for a stimulating presentation on asceticism in the early church with Rev. Kyle Mietzner, pastor of Grace Lutheran Church, Greensboro, NC.  Bring a sack lunch.
