The Lutheran Historical Society of the Mid-Atlantic was formed in 1989 as a reorganization of The Historical Society of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in North America begun in 1952 and of its predecessor organizations, the first of which was founded in 1843.
Spring Program 2016
The Spring Meeting of the Society will once more take place at Gettysburg Seminary during the Spring Academy Week, Tuesday, April 19, 2016. This partnership allows us to meet surrounded by students, faculty, and alums and to expose them to our excitement about the Society and its mission.
Our offerings that morning will include “Milton Valentine on Faith and Science”, by Stephen Herr (Pastor of Christ Lutheran Church in Gettysburg and President, Lutheran Historical Society of the MidAtlantic). That will be followed by “Science and Biblical Interpretation: the LC-MS in the 1970’s and 1980’s” by James C. Burkee (Vice Provost of Graduate and Online Academic Affairs, Concordia College, NY and Winner of the LHS/MA Biglerville Prize).
The morning will close for us with our annual meeting, including the election of members to the Board. Members may also register for a lunch at the seminary refectory, and are welcome to remain for the afternoon’s programs at the seminary. A registration form was mailed to Society members, and can be downloaded below.
