A Simple Way

The Lutheran church uses Martin Luther’s “Small Catechism” to teach the Christian faith “in a simple way.” Yet the catechism is more than a way of learning: it’s a simple way of living! A sermon series on the six parts of the Catechism occurred from October 2016 through May 2017.

You can listen to the catechism’s simple teachings about each of these things and how they nourish and strengthen the Christian life.
