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 2015
The Spring Meeting of the Society will once more take place at Gettysburg Seminary during the Spring Academy Week, Tuesday, April 28, 2015. 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 fit in with the Seminary’s theme for these days, “Homecoming.” It will begin with a presentation by the Rev. Dr. Mark Oldenburg on the work of Lutherans to resettle displaced persons in Europe following the Second World War. That will be followed by a panel of two combat veterans reflecting on their own experience of returning to civilian (and church) life: Nathan Huffman, a veteran of the recent conflicts in the Persian Gulf, and Marlin Plymette, who served in Vietnam.
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.
