Dr. C.F.W. Walther

October 25 marks the 200th anniversary of the birthday of Dr. CFW Walther, the founder of our Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (and our own Concordia Seminary, St, Louis).  Concordia Seminary is releasing a 5-part DVD educational resource to all congregations.  Disc One will be the entire 2 hour narrative film presenting the history of our church from its Saxon roots in 1838, across the Atlantic ocean, up the Mississippi river, and finally the early beginnings in Perry County and St. Louis.  Discs Two and Three have the film broken down into four half-hour segments, each followed by thirty minutes of explanation and discussion by theologians from our seminaries.  Disc Four focuses on the legacy of Dr. CFW Walther and features insights and reflections from all of the surviving Presidents of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, and Concordia Theological Seminary - those gentlemen walking in the footsteps of Dr. CFW Walther.  For more information and a listing of all those involved, plus clips and a trailer, please visit www.waltherfilm.com.  We currently have no plans to view these discs as a congregation, but if you would like to take them home and watch, or use in a study group, please let the church office know.  Click here to read more about Dr. Walther.
