Slenczka, Reinhard Luther’s Care of Souls for Our Time. Concordia Theological Quarterly. 67.1 (2003 January): 33-64. 

Over 450 years have passed since the death of Martin Luther (February 18,1546). All Protestant churches should be grateful for the work of the Reformer, but especially those churches that-against his express will-call themselves “Lutheran.” However, do we, as Lutherans in proclamation and catechesis, still uphold the chief concern of the
Reformation? Reformation, that is, re-formation, aims at the elimination of deformations, abuses, and defects that invade and appear in the church at all times. In this sense, thinking about “Luther’s care of souls for our times” is not only about remembering..


Doxology provides a safe environment for clergy to reflect on their own spiritual and emotional health and assists them to review and enhance their professional competencies and skills as servants of Christ and stewards of God’s sacred mysteries.
