What is Loci?
Loci is an (almost) monthly gathering of Lutheran pastors and laypeople dedicated to studying sacred theology. Regional pastors take turns each month presenting on different topics related to the year's theme. These gatherings are hosted by All Saints Lutheran Church, Charlotte NC. We begin with Matins at 10:30 AM. Presentations begin at 11 AM and are composed of two one hour sessions with a lunch break in-between (lunch is BYO). Please consider joining us for stimulating presentations, theological discussions and camaraderie with fellow confessional Lutherans.
2018 Theme – Christ in You - Your Life in Christ
We’re very excited about this year’s theme for Loci! If you’ve spent any time in the Lutheran blogosphere, or social media it’s impossible to miss the great debate taking place among confessional Lutherans. Charges of antinomianism and legalism abound. Lutheran service organizations and prominent theologians have been condemned. No matter what side of the debate you find yourself on, its apparent that clarity needs to be brought to the issues. So, join us for this year long discussion of the Christian life!
