Christian Meditation, Spiritual Warfare, What? Thursday, August 17 at 6:30 pm Family Room. Dr. James Brauer (emeritus professor of Concordia Seminary), will discuss the benefits of reading good devotional literature, using John W. Kleinig’s Grace Upon Grace: Spirituality for Today (CPH, 2008) as an example. Kleinig is a respected Lutheran teacher, author and lecturer on worship, biblical studies and Christian spirituality. He extols the “ordinary life of faith” (Baptism, Scripture, Lord’s Supper, prayer, and resisting temptation). Everyone is invited. Members of CM Library’s 3D group can pick up the book to be discussed on September 21. Dessert will be fresh fruit, pound cake, and homemade crème fraiche cinnamon fruit dip.
