Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton encouraged everyone to take a fresh look at Luther’s Small Catechism during this year of celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. “We have a common language with which to talk about faith, engage Scripture and make sense of our world. Catechism is not just for the young. This is most certainly true,” she stated in her Living Lutheran article “Big Look at Small Catechism.”
The synod newsletter Making Christ Known is focusing on the Small Catechism during this year.
