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.

We extend a warm welcome to this year's speaker, Dr. Vincent Evener. Dr. Vincent Evener joined the United Lutheran Seminary in fall 2015 after completing his Ph.D. at the University of Chicago Divinity School. His research examines how Martin Luther and other sixteenth-century reformers sought to bring about a transformation in the way Christians perceived their world and lived their lives, particularly in light of intra-Christian divisions. Recent and forthcoming publications address how reformers appealed to spiritual and outward suffering to buttress claims to truth; the Protestant reception of medieval mysticism; Luther’s efforts to teach Christians how to respond to ghostly apparitions; and the nature and reception of Luther’s anti-Catholic and anti-Jewish teachings.In addition to introductory courses on the history of Christianity and the Reformation, he teaches electives on themes such as mysticism and spirituality, marriage and family in Christian history, and the cross and suffering. In his teaching, Dr. Evener seeks to explore with students the breadth and depth of the Lutheran tradition and the broader Christian tradition. The goal is to enable students to draw upon the tradition and apply its insights effectively as church leaders. Dr. Evener is director of the seminary’s annual Luther Colloquy, and presents frequently to congregations and other organizations on a broad range of topics surrounding Luther, the Reformation, and the history of Christianity. He is originally from Central Pennsylvania and has a wife and son.
