Strengtheningour faith through knowledge and understanding.
The Luther Rose Lecture Series is made possible through a gift from Rev. Gerhard G. Dietrich and Mrs. Marie O. Dietrich. Pastor Dietrich served at Palm Lutheran Church from 1956 to1984. Guided through prayer, the purpose of this gift is to pay for speakers or programs on the general topics of Lutheranism: Martin Luther and the Reformation, the administration of the Lutheran Church in America and at Palm, and other topics that promote the understanding of Lutheranism. Established in 2015, the Luther Rose Lecture Series aspires to empower Christians through education in the hope that more informed disciples will sustain the church and carry the Word of God into the future.

Save the Date!500th Anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation
We extend a warm welcome to this year's speaker Rev. Dr. Maria Erling. Dr. Erling is the professor of Modern Church History and Global Missions at United Lutheran Seminary, Gettysburg. Dr. Erling's special focus is on American Lutheranism and the various ways that mission has been understood in the history of the church. Dr. Erling plans a two part presentation:How did Luther make such an impact with his Reformation Movement?How did the Reformation spread, and become a global movement?
In this two part talk Dr. Erling explains how the Reformation was a popular movement, using the latest printing technology to spread a message of Christian freedom and a program of lay education. Then, because the Reformation set in motion and came at a time of dramatic changes in politics and economics, European culture expanded into the new world, and later into the places where Lutherans sent missionaries and relief workers. Luther's Reformation influenced the spread of Christianity in new ways, empowering lay people throughout the world, while also strengthening international ties among Christians.We are delighted to share Dr. Erling's insights and expertise on this special occasion marking the 500th Anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation.
