To observe the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, Mequon, Wis., is hosting a Hymn Festival on Oct. 1 at 7:30 p.m. Open to all, the festival will feature 15 of Luther’s hymns. Seven will be sung by the congregation; seven will be sung by the Seminary Chorus, the Wisconsin Lutheran College Choir, and the Lutheran Chorale of Milwaukee; one will be featured in an organ solo performed by Rev. Aaron Christie, pastor at Trinity, Waukesha, Wis. A host of accompanying musicians will also be included.

Then, on Oct. 2-3, the seminary will hold its annual symposium for pastors. The symposium on Reformation 500 will include four essays on Luther and the Standards, Luther and the Scriptures, Luther and the Saints, and Luther and the State.
