The 2019 St. Michael's Liturgical Conference will be Monday, September 30, 2019.
The Keynote Presenter at our 2019 conference will be Fr. Roy Axel Coats, Pastor of Lutheran Church of the Redeemer, Baltimore, Maryland. His topic will be “Adiaphora and the place of the Enlightenment Church: Its liturgical effect”. His paper will examine the effect of modernity, especially in the writings of Christian Thomasius, on the liturgy of the church and the resistance to these changes. It will look at how the discussion of adiaphora and the place of the church changed in the early Enlightenment and its effect on the liturgies of the Lutheran churches.
