New Man on Campus

From the office of Dr. Dale Meyer, president of Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, MO:

“Iím pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Uwe Siemon-Netto as our new ‘Scholar in Residence.’ Dr. Siemon-Netto will establish and direct the ‘Concordia Seminary Institute on Lay Vocation.’ He is a prolific author, perhaps best know in LCMS circles for The Fabricated Luther.”

“As director of the ‘Concordia Seminary Institute on Lay Vocation’ and on behalf of the Seminary, Dr. Siemon-Netto will offer seminars, lectures, and courses both on and off campus on lay vocation from a Lutheran theological perspective. He will write newspaper, magazine and on-line articles, including regular contributions to the Lutheran Witness. In addition to those activities, Dr. Siemon-Netto will be available to speak in seminary classes, at special seminary gatherings, and socialize with you. Iím quite confident that youíll find him an engaging conversationalist.”

  1. I presume “lay vocation” is more than “pray, pay, and obey”.

    Maybe the seminary’s Institute on Lay Vocation will eventually produce a sequel to Alan Graebner’s _Uncertain Saints: The Laity in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, 1900-1970_ (Greenwood Press. Westport, Conn. 1975. 284 pages). There’s been a couple or so significant events for the laity in the Synod since 1970.

  2. I presume “lay vocation” is more than “pray, pay, and obey”.

    Nope, our motto is: “Keep ’em uninformed, docile and inactive.”
