Be a Lifelong Learner — Take a Class

I imagine many of our readers follow this blog because they are lifelong learners.  We review lots of books and study materials and attempt to discuss and explain spiritual issues from a Lutheran perspective.  If you’re a church history buff, I’d like to recommend another opportunity to learn.  My husband, Pastor Terry Culler is offering a course on Zoom through Shepherd University’s continuing education program.  Here’s the class description:

16th Century Christianity:  A Study of Five Reformations

Western Civilization cannot be well understood without reference to the impact of Christianity on our social structures and our ways of thought.  The 16th century particularly has shaped our religious views, our political views, our economic systems and our cultural practices.  The 16th century saw the rise of five related but still distinct reformations:  Lutheran, Reformed, Radical, English and Roman Catholic.  This class will explore all five movements seeking to understand how they continue to affect not only religious thought in the modern world, but all aspects of culture.

Classes will be held on Tuesdays:  September 15, 22, 29 and October 6, 13, 20 at 10:30 AM- Noon on Zoom.

If you are interested in attending, you can follow the link below for more information on Shepherd’s Lifelong Learning Program.  There is a fee, but the instructors are volunteers and do not receive payment for their time.

If you have problems with the link or questions, you may email Pastor Culler at
